Ralph Losey, Principal & National e-Discovery Counsel at Jackson Lewis P.C., singlehandedly reviewed and ranked the top 22 eDiscovery cases of 2016 in a blog post. After the 2015 Rules Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), our community watched with interest (or waited in line to file) challenges or clarifications to the Amendments.  

In his blog post, Losey does not disappoint. He picks cases that explore the inherent authority of judges vs. the limitations of newly amended 37(e), proportionality and text message deletion, and format of production; whether prejudice and intent to deprive must be proven for the most rigorous sanctions. Other points of interest include proportionality, as applied to forensic analysis, production of an employee's mailbox upon request of the employee, and the preservation obligations of plaintiffs.

Losey's analyses dives deep into the facts of each case, and extensively quotes the words of each judge regarding the e-discovery process, preservation or production before the court. There are also pictures of each jurist, making visible the deep bench of judges who understand electronic discovery. Move over ediscoverylaw, there's a new reference in town.
