Attorneys often think “eDiscovery” means that a lawsuit is in Federal Court with hundreds of computers being forensically imaged and rooms full of contract attorneys review email. Virtually every case has electronically stored information and many attorneys every day make decisions on “eDiscovery” without realizing it.

The new California eDiscovery Ethics opinion 2015-193 states, “An attorney lacking the required competence for e-discovery issues has three options:

(1) Acquire sufficient learning and skill before performance is required; (2) Associate with or consult technical consultants or competent counsel; or (3) Decline the client representation. Lack of competence in e-discovery issues also may lead to an ethical violation of an attorney’s duty of confidentiality.


Formal Opinion 2015-193
Attorneys handling small cases with electronically stored information must understand how to competently handle ESI in order to keep eDiscovery costs under control for a single party. This brown bag will cover best practices for preserving social media, email, and other relevant ESI; ways to defensibly review ESI; admissibility; and compliance with the obligations stated in Formal Opinion 2015-193.
