by Matthew Verga, JD, Xact Data Discovery
In “Data on the Move,” we discussed new usage data, new evidence of evidence, and new technology news related to mobile devices in eDiscovery. In “A Few Recent Cases,” we began our review of recent mobile device cases. In “A Few More Recent Cases,” we continued that review, and in this Part, we conclude it.
As we noted in “A Few Recent Cases,” the frequency with which cases have had to address mobile device issues has steadily increased over the past few years. From preservation obligations, to proportionality challenges, to privacy concerns, mobile devices have become a discovery battleground. In this Part, we conclude our chronological review of a sampling of those recent cases and see what additional guidance can be gleaned from them.
