E-DISCOVERY: State-by-state resources to set you in the right direction

Quite some time ago, I covered a few e-discovery resources on this blog.  You can find that old post here.

I'm adding another to that list (additions being long overdue).  This list has an interesting collection of state-by-state links.  It might set you in the right direction if you have to deal with e-discovery in a state in which you don't normally practice:

Electronic Discovery Law Throughout the United States

For attendees of the LACBA conference looking for the e-mail forensics software I mentioned...

it can be obtained through Paraben.  The product is currently known as Network Email Examiner (Nemex), version 3.0.  I under-priced it a bit.  It is listed currently as a $799 purchase.  Still cheap when you consider what it does.  The feature list is as follows:

  • Supports GroupWise information stores up to 7.03
  • Supports Microsoft Exchange information stores 5.0, 5.5, 2000, Exchange 2003 & 2007 (.EDB)
  • Supports Lotus Notes information stores 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 8 (.NSF)
  • Easy to use interface
  • Advanced searching options
  • View one or all individual e-mail accounts in information store
  • View all meta-data within individual messages
  • Complete Bookmarking
  • Export data for review in Paraben's E-mail Examiner
  • Summary HTML reporting
  • Export to PST files
  • NEW Output to MSG & EML format
  • Supports Deleted--Deleted recovery with Exchange

Imagine the ability to view and export one complete e-mail account from a massive Exchange information store.  Brilliant! 

The product page lists "free one year subscription" with purchase, but this pertains to the right to receive free updates.  When the year is up, you can still use the version that you have. 

CLE: The Thirtieth Annual Labor and Employment Law Symposium

On March 31, 2010, the Labor & Employment Law Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association will present the Thirtieth Annual Labor and Employment Law Symposium:

The 2010 Labor and Employment Law Symposium provides practical advice and cutting-edge panel discussions on labor and employment law issues of critical importance to attorneys, judges, neutrals, government practitioners, union representatives, in-house counsel, and human resource professionals. The Symposium provides a unique intellectual experience allowing the panelists, all of whom are recognized experts in their fields, to share new perspectives, ideas and information. Each panel discussion covers opposing viewpoints, interpretations and strategies, and will encourage audience questions and participation.

The location details:

I will be speaking on the panel entitled "20 Tips for Successful Navigation of e-Discovery Requirements," with Moderator Angela Robledo, Hon. Carl J. West, and Heather Morgan.
