Driving Electronic Discovery With Technological Competency – Your Roadmap to Success at Trial
[6:30 pm – 7:30 pm]

Preliminaries to Technical Competency: This session will introduce the skill sets AND sample documents you need to drive electronic discovery negotiation, whether in a major single event or MDL. The panel will also discuss the important changes in the 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the case law that emerged in the first year of their application, and comparisons with The Florida Rules Civil Procedure.

Negotiation and Stipulations for All Litigation

  • ESI Protocols – Don’t leave home without them;
  • Protective Orders, Tiering or Tearing?
  • FRE 502 Clawback – Not just for Federal litigation;
  • ESI Preservation – How to, and whether required.

Ethical and Technological Challenges

  • Transparency – Shield and Sword
  • Compliant and Non-Compliant Clients

Dancing the Electronic Discovery Kabuki Dance – ESI Requests, Interrogatories, Requests for Admission and Forensics; Practicing to Perfection While Avoiding Ethics Pitfalls
[ 7:45 pm – 8:45 pm]

With or without negotiated stipulations, you still need technological competency to complement your discovery acumen. Both the Florida and Federal rules provide both pathways as well as pitfalls to electronic discovery (and trial) success.

  • Dissect an actual complaint and associated document production request focusing on ESI;
  • Analyze “use it or lose it” format designation benefits for Plaintiffs;
  • Analyze what a document production request for ESI looks like in the absence of a ESI Protocol Stipulation;
  • Discuss uses of motions in limine directed to ESI.

Electronic Health Records and Beyond – New Evidence Abounds if You Know How to Get It
[8:45 pm – 10:00 pm]

  • A look under the hood: how a major EHR system works;
  • What the health care worker sees, what the lawyer gets, and why the differences matter for trial;
  • Beyond “the patient’s chart”: how to compel productions of the critical truths that matter most in the form of audit trails, template choices NOT made, defective user interfaces that contribute to medical errors, and more;
  • Authentication and admissibility: EHR will send you back to the basics and will be unforgiving of oversight;
  • Thinking BIG and tying it all together: ESI is everywhere in the healthcare environment, but you have to find it and ask for it. From ESI corporate depositions to “discovery about discovery,” here are the ways to do it.
