New Guidance on Preservation of Electronically-Stored Information from Zubalake Judge

Knowing what data a company holds is critical to privacy and data security risk management. It also is important as a matter of litigation preparedness. The judge who issued the series of seminal Zubulake opinions which essentially defined electronic document retention and discovery requirements nation-wide, calls for litigants not only to identify key data keepers but to identify key data very early in litigation. The new holdings, described in Hogan & Hartson’s Litigation Alert available in this blog entry, are likely to become as influential as the discovery-altering Zubulake decisions.
