Top-Notch E-Discovery Event at Amelia Island

Daniel Lim

Just returned from the Legal Technology Leadership Summit, which was held at Amelia Island, Florida last week. Having gone to a myriad of e-discovery conferences in the past, I must say that this conference rated as one of the best. Patrick Oot and Anne Kershaw from the eDiscovery Institute put together a first-rate event, with an elite group of speakers and attendees. It had a “just right” feel of not having too much noise, but all of the key people and thought leaders dealing with legal and technology issues. Attendees ranged from judges, attorneys from major corporations and law firms, as well as key technology providers.

Of particular interest was a lunch presentation on ESI Over-Preservation, where attorneys with the Lawyers for Civil Justice discussed their efforts to put forth changes to the FRCP to refine preservation duties. While I can’t discuss the substance of what was shared in this candid discussion, suffice it to say that over-preservation of ESI remains a pressing issue.

Thanks to the eDiscovery Institute, Above the Law, and ASDFED for putting on a great, and MEANINGFUL event.
