Litigation Hold Letters
Instructor: Eric R. Lifvendahl
Because of the importance of electronic data to all forms of business, electronic discovery is an important part of nearly every case. Therefore, it is important to understand your duties with respect to identifying and preserving electronic data in anticipation of litigation, the case law governing the duty to identify and preserve electronic information, and the various means available to preserve the data at the beginning of a lawsuit. This one-hour program discusses each of these issues. Specific topics that are covered include sanctions for spoliation of electronic evidence, methods of preserving electronic evidence, use of litigation hold letters, preserving your opponent’s data, preserving your client’s data, and demonstrating that preservation efforts were committed in “good faith”.
