Recent attention to the upcoming e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure has heightened awareness about parties’ duties to preserve and produce electronic documents and data for legal discovery. However, requests for electronic information are not always directed at parties to litigation. Surprisingly, very little discussion has surfaced regarding the electronic evidence production and preservation duties required of non-parties. Join us for an online seminar to learn what courts and the new Federal Rules have to say with respect to how corporations and their counsel should prepare for and respond to government and private party subpoenas for documents and data in their possession. During this presentation, we will address questions such as:

  • Are electronic evidence preservation duties the same for parties and non-parties alike?
  • Is the permissible scope of discovery of non-party data the same as the scope permitted for discovery of data in a party’s possession?
  • Are courts offering additional protection from discovery burdens for non-parties?
  • Who pays for non-party discovery costs?

Presenters include:

Grant J. Esposito
Morrison & Foerster

Lisa Spinelli
Legal Consultant
Kroll Ontrack

This seminar will be a live Internet broadcast.
