Discovery in complex litigation is becoming more and more challenging as electronic data is sometimes the only source of relevant information in a case. Montgomery County Circuit Court Track 4 Business and Technology scheduling orders require parties to provide detailed information about clients' computer and data systems at the onset of litigation including identification of computer systems, formats of production, claw back provisions and preservation strategies. Many attorneys are uncomfortable with this new Electronic version of the discovery process which has led to an explosive growth in sanctions motions throughout the Country and specifically in Maryland. A recent Lexis Nexis search for "sanctions" in Maryland revealed that there are over 4000 open civil cases where attorneys and their clients are facing sanctions issues. This course is designed to prepare practitioners in the art of E-discovery practice including information about preservation, collection, identification, and production of electronic information in ongoing litigation. The course will enable practitioners to be involved in effective meet and confers regarding E-discovery at the earliest stages of litigation and provide a combination of legal and technical information for even the most tech averse practitioners.



Mary Lombardo, Esq. & J. Bradford McCullough, Esq., Commercial Litigation Section Co-Chairs
