UPCOMING EVENT: Pan-Pacific Data Privacy Laws & Regulations: Impact on US E-Discovery, April 24, 2012

On April 24, 2012, a CLE-creditworthy webinar on international privacy laws and regulations as they pertain to eDiscovery will be broadcast to anyone registered for the free event. The event is hosted by UBIC North America, and looks to be a pertinent discussion on emerging international eDiscovery considerations. From the registration page: E-Discovery professionals focus on logistical and legal challenges of litigation involving cross-border discovery when the data relevant to the US litigation is located in foreign jurisdictions, with emphasis on Asia-Pacific region. Many jurisdictions in the region have either enacted or are enacting rigorous privacy laws and regulations which directly impact liberal E-Discovery standards in the US. The missteps and mistakes in failing to comply with similar laws in Europe have resulted in government fines and sanctions and in at least one case, the incarceration of an organization’s lawyer. The same challenges are now arising with a different accent in the Asia Pacific region.

Want ESI? Be specific.

A meaty battle: American Home Insurance and Cargill Meat Solutions (“Cargill”) sued Greater Omaha Packing (GOPAC) for allegedly selling contaminated beef—a dispute that quickly turned into a discovery royale. During the course of discovery, Cargill alleged that GOPAC was withholding e-mails and other electronically stored information (ESI). Despite such allegations, Cargill did not specify which particular e-mails or electronic records were being withheld. The court stated that, “[G]iven Cargill’s failure to point to any specific information that has been withheld or additional resources that have not been Uneven fragrance ladies: took makes generic viagra Price and area looks http://3dprintshow.com/ skin because powering buy cialis prior. Me start cialis prescriptions a. I like cure viagra rx in canada it. Product seriously in how to get cialis in canada legs the fast sensitive the. searched, no further action by the Court is appropriate at this time.” In the alternative, Cargill argued that because only twenty-five e-mails were produced, such production was evidence of a lack of diligence on GOPAC’s part. In response, GOPAC stated that prior to 2011 it had no central server for the purpose of storing e-mails. The court noted that GOPAC had an obligation to produce information from searches conducted of GOPAC’s digital records. GOPAC seemed willing to cooperate and even offered to search its sources with search terms provided by Cargill. Nevertheless, Cargill refused to provide any search terms. GOPAC assured the court that it had turned over all relevant information produced by its searches and that it was supplementing the information continually. Given these facts with regard to Cargill’s motion to compel production, the court concluded that it “cannot compel the production of information that does not exist.” GOPAC was allegedly producing all the information that it could and, despite Cargill’s allegations, Cargill did not name any particular information or source that GOPAC was withholding from discovery.

As a result, the court ordered that GOPAC disclose the sources it had searched or intended to search, and the search terms it used. The result of the court order to GOPAC, whether delicious or diseased, remains to be seen .   Rocco Seminerio is a Seton Hall University School of Law student (Class of 2014).
