Interesting legal news

Another Blogspot blogger lists an interesting court case involving discovery issues and electronic files. The ruling seems to revolve around the requesting party's failure to ask for native file types, or to recognise that such types would necessarily exist. They were given TIFF files instead and had trouble searching through these image files and complained about it to the judge. Judges are getting rather creative in their rulings. Check it out by clicking here.

In other news, a recent law amends the Federal Rules of Evidence, Rule 502. The rule change deals with waivers of privilege based on inadvertent disclosures (the admissibility of mistakenly released privileged documents). Check it out by clicking here.
