Learning the Lessons of eDiscovery: Information Governance and the Safe Harbor Provision
Are you learning the lessons of eDiscovery history? Or are you doomed to repeat the same mistakes of those lawyers whose companies and careers were damaged by eDiscovery failures?
While there are many such lessons to be learned, one stands out in particular for companies seeking to minimize litigation risks and reduce operating expenses: the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(e) safe harbor for the destruction of electronic information. This provision can be a “get out of jail free” card for savvy organizations that have followed best practices for information governance.
How can your company "play this card"? For more information, read a brief article from the Daily Journal last month in the following link http://bit.ly/lt2GB7. Entitled “Learning the Lessons of eDiscovery: Information Governance and the Safe Harbor,” the article describes the Rule 37(e) “safe harbor” and ties its application to best practices for information governance.
