The spotlight was on Social Media and eDiscovery at this month’s Women in eDiscovery NYC Chapter meeting, which was sponsored by CDS. An expert panel including Justice Tanya Kennedy, consultant Maribel Rivera, attorney Stephen Barrett of Wilson Elser and Michele Kell, Esq., Director of Enterprise Operations at CDS provided a multi-disciplinary look at this important subject.
Among other things, the conversation explored the future of data privacy in the U.S. and the effect on social media preservation, as well as the interplay between U.S. and international laws. For example, if the U.S. moves toward more stringent privacy laws, like those already in place in the EU, how would that impact the handling of social media in eDiscovery? The litigation support professionals and attorneys in attendance gained insights on this and other questions from the diverse panel encompassing judicial, attorney, business and technologist perspectives.
