eDiscovery Origins: Zubulake

The Case Series that Started it All

Welcome to our signature feature, eDiscovery Origins: Zubulake, designed to give readers a primer on the eDiscovery movement through blog posts about Zubulake, the series of court opinions that helped form the foundation for eDiscovery. eDiscovery Origins: Zubulake takes each Zubulake decision and distills its key elements into what has become our trademark – simple, witty, easy to understand eLessons.

eDiscovery Origins: Zubulake also takes a behind-the-scenes look at those who have most influenced the eDiscovery movement and offers insight into their contributions. As one leading eDiscovery guru put it, ���if you are a novice to eDiscovery case law this is a must read.”

    The blog takes a clever approach to [e-discovery]. Each post discusses an e-discovery case that involves an e-discovery mishap, generally by a company employee. It discusses the conduct that constituted the mishap and then offers its ‘e-lesson’ — a suggestion on how to learn from the mistake and avoid it happening to you.

    Although I may have missed some, yours is the first article that I have seen addressing Zubulake II. It is often the lost opinion amongst the others.
