Tom, Mighell, Evan Schaefffer and I write the “Thinking E-Discovery” column on the site.
Our latest column, called “Rethinking Electronic Discovery and Paper Discovery in the Post-Katrina Era” has just been published.
This column finds us in a contemplative mood as we consider the ramifications of Hurricane Katrina. We consider the differences between paper and digital in a time of disaster and speculate whether events like Katrina will change thinking about electronic discovery and electronic filing.
The money quote (from Tom Mighell):
As far as the courts are concerned, disasters like this underscore the inevitable move to electronic filing of case documents.
We really enjoy writing this column and hope that many of you will find the columns useful and helpful.
