    E-Discovery Budget

    in Legal

    The first step in budgeting is to prepare an estimate based upon your best guesses and assumptions about the data to be collected.  Remember, the opposing party will undoubtedly respond to your discovery requests as burdensome, not relevant, overbroad, inaccessible, and too costly.  In anticipation of these objections, you will need to practice what is called "anticipatory e-discovery" to take the steam out of the objections from the opposing party.
    Some factors to be considered should include:
    Volume.  Volume is almost always the largest driver of cost.  Mortgage foreclosure issues surrounding Assignments of Mortgage will not encompass a lot of volume. Scope.  It will be wise to start with the smallest possible scope and expand if necessary. Efficiency.  Plan an E-Discovery strategy in advance that will allow for an efficient human review of the documents obtained. Timing.  Time is of the essence.  More time for E-Discovery activities will optimize efficiency and minimize mistakes and costs. Risk.  Mitigating risk up front through agreement and cooperation with the opposing party will help define where you stand and eliminate potential risks in the future. Location. Location. Location.  Where the data is located can affect costs so can the jurisdiction of the case. (Human review will be more accurate when doing small scale review)

    What Is E-Discovery? (Electronic Discovery or ESI)

    in Legal

    Hello folks and thank you once again for joining here at the E-Discovery for FDCPA Pro Se Litigants Webinar.  I am your host, Anthony Johnson. 
    Before we can truly get into how to request electronically stored information (ESI) from a debt collector or original creditor, we must first understand what is ESI.  We must also understand the EDRM Lifecycle, the industry standard.  More on that later in the coming Webinars.  For now, please know that electronic discovery has been described as the disclosure of electronically stored information including the form or forms in which it should be produced.  This includes, but not limited to, email, spreadsheets, word proessing documents, audio, video, or any content in a digital format. 
    So, when your debt collector or original creditor would intimate that they do not have the original contract or application that was signed when the presumptive debt in question metastasized because it was procured via telephone or Internet, you can respond that under the federal and state rules relating to electronically stored information, you have a duty to request and they to disclose responsive electronic evidence.
    For further illumination on this Webinar, please visit A. Johnson & Associates, LLC at www.ediscoverynow.net or 888-502-0586.

    E-Discovery for Pro Se Litigants

    in Legal

    Today, all litigants, pro se or otherwise have a duty to request and disclose responsive electronic evidence in their cases.  Whether your case is consumer debt litigation, foreclosure, or wrongful termination, discovery issues relating to electronically stored information (ESI) will have to be addressed.
    When requesting ESI in discovery, the first step is to determine the specific, relevant case information you want from the responding side.  Our E-Discovery Nuts and Bolts for Pro Se Litigants e-book, is a step-by-step guide on how to determine the specific, relevant case information, and guide you along the EDRM (Electronic Discovery Reference Model), the industry standard.
    Pick up a copy of the E-Discovery Nuts and Bolts for Pro Se Litigants e-book at www.amazon.com.
    For more information on e-discovery and how to apply the rules in relation to the preservation, discoverability, production, accessibility, and costs associated with ESI, which includes e-mail, word processing documents, spreadsheets, voice mail, databases, and more, contact A. Johnson & Associates, LLC at 888-502-0586, email me at ajohnson@ediscoverynow.net, or visit our website at www.ediscoverynow.net.

    E-Discovery Identification and Preservation Questionnaire

    in Legal

    The Electronic Discovery Identification and Preservation Questionnaire is designed to help identify, preserve, and collect electronically stored information (ESI) for discovery.  The questions contained therein may be best answered by the opposing party's IT personnel.  It is highly recommended that a representative from the Litigation Support Team of the opposing party participate in discussions with the client's IT personnel.
    The questionnaire will help you narrow the relevant time frame, inquire as to whether a formal Litigation Hold has been implemented, determine if there is a written records retention/destruction policy in place, as well as be informed as to whether any data destruction and auto-deletion policies have been suspended since the institution of litigation.
    You will also obtain a description of the network infrastructure and organization of ESI, including, but not limited to file servers, email servers, application and web servers.  Also, the most important part of the questionnaire is to find out who are the relevant custodians, their names and locations within or outside the company who may possess or control ESI or paper documents relevant to the litigation.
    For more information on this topic, please contact A. Johnson & Associates, LLC at 888-502-0586 or email me at ajohnson@ediscoverynow.net.
