Social Media Discovery: We Are Woefully Unprepared!
It has been a topic du jour, but social media discovery does not seem to be gaining the mindshare one might expect given the explosion in usage of social media.

There are many JDs out there more qualified to dig into precedents and what they mean. Suffice it to say that social media is potentially discoverable and ignoring it could lead to sanctions, adverse inferences, and higher than expected eDiscovery costs.

There Can Be No Justice Without Truth, And No Truth Without Search
Justice is based on truth, on what really happened. That is a basic problem in law because facts are usually contested. Each side has their own story. The truth is out there, but requires search to discover. Truth and justice thus depend upon effect…
