Judge John Facciola Says Discovery Practice Becomes Crucial

by Cary J. Calderone, Esq.

Judge Facciola
For those of you legal professionals and information managers who are avoiding learning more about the technology aspects of electronic information and how it applies to litigation and compliance, you need to listen to the interview Judge John Facciola gave to law.com (link here) on e-discovery training.  In his words, "discovery practice becomes crucial."  Or, you can read an older post recapping our enjoyable visit with Judge Facciola in 2009, at the RSA Conference (link).

If you are reading this blog, you have a head start.  We continue to report on the new technologies that will come into play in litigation.  One of my favorite movie lines about the law is apropos: Tom Cruise's character in A Few Good Men says "It doesn't matter what I believe.  It only matters what I can prove!"   You have to be able to find it and authenticate it, to prove it.   If you do not understand the technology of data and storage, it will be exceedingly difficult to do so.
