A concise summary of e-Discovery FAQs written by Judge Shira A. Scheindlin, S.D.N.Y., arising out of the Federal Rules 2006 e-Discovery Amendments. Judge Scheindlin is the author of the famous Zublake opinions that have provided guidance for many litigants on e-Discovery issues. I am pleased to say that I did have an Internet related case before Judge Scheindlin before she wrote the Zublake opinions. In a motion I argued before Judge Scheindlin regarding whether or not our "dot com" case should be heard in NY or California I acknowledged to her that both Courts were equally sophisticated on Internet and technology related legal issues - boy was I glad I said that. Judge Scheindlin's Zublake opinions have proven that there are more venues than the Northern District of California for groundbreaking technology related legal opinions.
Welcome to Moredata
This web site focuses on electronic discovery and evidence methods for litigators including software tools, cases, best practices, and rules.
My name is Ira P. Rothken and I am a high technology litigator. My law practice involves a lot of electronic discovery and Internet related litigation. My law firm's web site is located at techfirm.com and here is a sample of the kinds of cases I have handled from a CNET News.com article profiling my legal career defending Internet technology companies in complex litigation and a general profile on the Sedona Conference web site. I was a computer programmer and medical researcher before I became an attorney and I still write software code. I like to use interesting new software tools and customized software like spiders and crawlers in the investigation and litigation of my cases. I also like to demystify all the hoopla over electronic discovery or "e-discovery." I named the site Moredata since it seems in many cases in this Internet connected world, especially class actions and complex business litigation matters, litigators are saying to themselves as the cases evolve - "oh no more data?!"
I hope this site helps you to answer e-discovery and electronic evidence questions and find useful information and software tools.
