And on behalf of, a big thanks to LegalTech for being such a gracious host. We’ll be blogging about you in the days to come!

  2. Great points, Frank.

    I can’t wait to see the video interviews. I hear you and your team of roving reporters scored big-time interviews with some of the biggest names in the ESI industry.

    Great job!

  3. Should finish editing and have them up just after Valentine’s Day. Keep checking back!

  4. Gotta love the MacGyver reference.

It discusses the conduct that constituted the mishap and then offers its ā€˜e-lessonā€™ ā€” 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.
