As companies continue to grapple with the cost, complexity, and enormity of eDiscovery, judges in numerous cases have offered useful guidance on how litigants should manage retention, preservation, production, review, and privilege—and the expense associated with each. Courts also have addressed eDiscovery in the context of ever-evolving technologies, from offering an assessment of computer-assisted review to taking on the question of whether content like social media activity and text messages are fair game. While every company has different needs and every case presents a different set of facts, a look at recent judicial activity can offer a helpful set of eDiscovery best practices.
