ARMA Indy Meeting – eDiscovery and ESI – May 22, 2014
Join us on Thursday, May 22ndfrom 11:30 to 1:30 for a lunch meeting of the ARMA Greater Indianapolis Chapter, hosted by Ice Miller LLP. The meeting will be focusing on eDiscovery and the preservation of electronically stored information.
Preservation of ESI is fundamental to the litigation process in the Indiana state and federal courts and the failure to preserve can give rise to sanctions for spoliation. We will explore the role of records management in preservation, when the duty to preserve arises, what the scope of that duty may be, and the possible consequences for 'not getting it right.
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were amended in 2006 to address eDiscovery. Proposed amendments to the rules are now under consideration to again address eDiscovery. We must consider why the amendments were proposed, what the proposed amendments are intended to accomplish, and how the amendment process is proceeding.
