From “tweets” to Facebook status updates, social media has taken over how we communicate with the outside world. It has also become a large part of our legal system. Social media is now considered key evidence in both criminal cases and civil lawsuits. Lawyer2Lawyer co-hosts and attorneys, Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi examine the surge in social media-based evidence and claims in litigation, as well as the importance of educating attorneys on the ins and outs of social media with Attorney Antigone Peyton, Founder and CEO of Cloudigy® Law, PLLC and Attorney Ernest Svenson, solo attorney and blogger.
On this January edition of Law Technology Now, host and Law Technology News’ editor-in-chief, Monica Bay joins Cecil Lynn III, e-discovery counsel at Littler. Lynn, who is based in Phoenix, offers a sneak preview of his second annual “Year in Review” analysis of 2011’s most important electronic data discovery rulings.
The landmark Zubulake e-discovery decisions were the first of many to transform a narrow duty not to spoliate into a much broader duty to affirmatively preserve all possibly relevant evidence when there exists a “reasonable anticipation of litigation.” But have these judicial opinions gone too far?

He talks with Monica Bay, editor-in-chief of Law Technology News, about his five proposed rules that he says will prevent substantial injustices, yet be comprehensive and comprehensible.
