Our “Top 20 … plus more”, a snapshot of interesting blog posts, and views on electronic discovery related issues and other tech developments from the past week. Sponsored by Applied Discovery.
The week in e-discovery news starts off with a bang, with plaintiffs being awarded the stunning sum of $1,049,850.04 for defendants’ spoliation misconduct and a court ruling that a company’s stated email policy takes precedence over attorney-client privilege when client-attorney communications take place – you guessed it – over work email.
In other news this week, LegalTech NYC (1/31-2/2) gets a head-start in water-cooler conversations. What with top bloggers’ promised coverage of the event, LegalTech news will assuredly be enlightening and engaging this year. We’ll be there too, so come see us in person at Booth 429, check out our panelist Joshua Kubicki at Pardon the eDiscovery on Tuesday, February 1st at 4PM, or in the virtual realm at @resnickjon, @vhenschel or @discoverapplied.
As always, we hope you enjoy our content and welcome your feedback.

One of the ways you can learn about e-discovery and all the technology out there is by going to a conference near you. Most offer free admission to the exhibit hall (those that have exhibit halls) where you can meet technology vendors, collect information, see the technology at work behind e-discovery, etc.
