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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website at www.ediscoverynow.net.

Mike and Joyce speak with Berit Eberhardt, Division head for Kidney Cancer at the House of Life (Das Lebenshaus) in Germany.
Das Lebenshaus is a non-profit organization providing information and support for those affected by rare solid tumors: gastro-intestinal stromal tumors (GIST), Sarcoma, and Kidney Cancer.
Berit studied economics and worked as a project manager in a global information technology company. Her life changed when her boyfriend was diagnosed with kidney cancer. As a caregiver, Berit got in touch with Das Lebenshaus and read and learned a lot about the disease and the various possible treatments. Unfortunately, her boyfriend died just one year after his diagnosis, at the age of 39.
Half a year after his death she began a patient support group in Berlin. A few months later she became the manager of Kidney Cancer at Das Lebenshaus. She has broadened her commitment to Kidney Cancer and is an active participant in global events such as the International Kidney Cancer Coalition and the International events sponsored by the Kidney Cancer Association.

In this episode of Rise of The Patient, I interview Associate Professor Kevin J. Leonard to discuss Patient Destiny and the importance of collaboration and patient access.

Join me as I interview Dr. David Lewis as he shares his life experience in the health care system as a Family Doctor, Patient and Caregiver.
David Lewis FRCSEd, MRCGP David Lewis is a family doctor in United Kingdom. David completed medical training at Monash University and Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Postgraduate training in United Kingdom in general surgery then family medicine followed. In 1990, David was diagnosed with advanced Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was the same year his father died from lung cancer, and he married Danielle. Danielle was pregnant with their first child at the time of diagnosis. Anxious to have further children, David delayed essential treatment for the lymphoma to store sperm. This action has been vindicated because twins were born in 1994 with help of IVF; the children are among first 5000 IVF babies in UK. In 2007, David suffered a heart attack requiring emergency intervention, followed by quadruple bypass surgery. The heart surgery was successful, but a complication developed requiring further surgery in January 2008. Sadly, this operation was complicated by respiratory arrest and subsequent 5 weeks on a ventilator. Today, David works full time in National Health Service General Practice with three Partners. The practice also serves as a site for the University College London Medical School “Medicine in Community” program. The practice is in a suburban area and looks after over 6,600 people from cradle to grave. In the last couple of years David has developed an interest in promoting the use of information technology for professional development and peer support

Robin Martinez, one of the listowners (administrators) for KIDNEY-ONC, CHROMOPHOBE-RCC, and PAPILLARY-RCC, three of over 100 mailing lists provided by the Association of Cancer Online Resources (ACOR). Subscribers to our mailing lists communicate via email sent simultaneously to all members. Patients, survivors, caregivers, and professionals discuss current treatments and how to choose among them, side effects, clinical trials, where to find experienced doctors, problems of living with a long-term disease, emotional support, and much more.
In 2011 KIDNEY-ONC won grand prize for an outstanding example of use of mailing list technology from L-Soft, the company which first developed this technology 27years ago. Our memers exemplify the e-patient movement in which patients become engaged, empowered, and well-equipped partners in their own health care.
Robin's late husband was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 1988 and died from it in 1998. During her own search for information in 1997, she became one of the administrators of the KIDNEY-ONC mailing list and later its offshoots for papillary and chromophobe RCC.
She has also served as a consumer reviewer for kidney cancer grant applications to the Department of Defense. She is affiliated with Action to Cure Kidney Cancer and the International Kidney Cancer Coalition. She lives in Denver, Colorado, with her adult son.
Robin will share information about ACOR's latest initiative, SmartPatient
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)

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.
