Using Information to Focus Resources in Litigation
OCTOBER 23, 2009—Electronic evidence not in traditional “document” form may remain untapped for the lack of someone who understands how it may be used. Interhack computer expert C. Matthew Curtin presents Using Information to Focus Resources—When, Why, and How to Use Computer Experts for continuing legal education credit (CLE) at the Columbus Bar Association on December 9, 2009. By means of examples from major cases that included consulting and opinion rendered by a computer science expert, Curtin discusses
- the types of data that may be relevant to litigation,
- how the information should be managed,
- how litigators can know what really is possible and defensible when a producing party claims that the information cannot be used in some particular way, and
- how producing parties can live up to their legal and ethical obligations without giving the keys to the kingdom to requesting parties.
Successful argumentation requires mastery of the facts. Both plaintiff's and defense counsel benefit by understanding the breadth of information types and their possible uses in litigation.
Legal professionals who would like to participate may register at the Columbus Bar Association Web site.
