This has been quite a year of controversy and e-discovery! On Digital Detectives, co-hosts Sharon D. Nelson, Esq., President of Sensei Enterprises, Inc. and John W. Simek, Vice President of Sensei Enterprises welcome Ralph Losey, a partner in the law firm of Jackson Lewis and a nationally known expert, author and lecturer on e-discovery, to spotlight some recent controversial issues in e-discovery. Ralph explores issues such as predictive coding, e-discovery certifications, whether we need to amend the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure again to address e-discovery problems and how to solve the problem of “e-discovery extortion.”

Providers are now offering certification courses and tests for e-discovery workers. Critics charge that the programs target the most vulnerable members of the legal community, advocates say they are a step in the right direction to provide better education and standards. On the August edition of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay (editor of Law Technology News) discusses the controversy with attorneys Patrick Oot, of Washington, D.C.’s eDiscovery Institute, and Albert Barsocchini, a San Francisco-based e-discovery consultant.
