In “Because You Need to Know What You Need to Know,” we reviewed the year in our educational program and previewed the topics for this series. In “Data Privacy Developments,” we reviewed the first of our two most frequent 2018 news topics. In “Challenging Source Developments,” we reviewed the second. In this final Part, we review cases and publications.
In addition to all of the industry news items on which we have already touched, 2018 brought the usual collection of notable cases. In particular this year, there were interesting cases on spoliation, proportionality, keyword searches, and TAR. Below we review a sampling of the most interesting cases from those four topical areas. (Additional noteworthy cases on social media and mobile device issues were covered in the last Part.)
