    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.

    Explaining the Electronic Discovery Reference Model

    in Legal

    Hello folks and thank you for joining me for another exciting episode of the E-Discovery for FDCPA Pro Se Litigants Internet Radio Webinar.  I am your host, Anthony Johnson.
    In this episode, we will talk about the EDRM, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model.  The EDRM is the industry standard for the production and processing of electronic data for discovery.  It was initially conceived by George Socha, Jr., founder of Socha Consulting, LLC in St. Paul, MN, and Tom Gelbmann, managing director of Gelbmann & Associates in Roseville, MN.  The EDRM divides the the e-discovery process into six areas:
    Information Management
    Identification
    Preservation/Collection
    Processing/Review/Analysis
    Production
    Preservation
    The EDRM also identifies the functions associated with each area, our topic of discussion today.  Obviously, we cannot cover every nook and cranny of the functions of the EDRM, so our goal is to give you the "nuts and bolts" so that you can connect the dots and understand why e-discovery is an important part of FDCPA litigation.  This Webinar is intended for those litigants who do not have any experience in e-discovery.
    For more information, contact A. Johnson & Associates, LLC at 888-502-0586 or www.ediscoverynow.net.
