Rhonda Wasserman Comments on the Burgeoning Field of E-discovery
Pitt Law Professor Rhonda Wasserman talked with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review about the growth area of e-discovery – how firms retrieve, preserve, and analyze electronic data as evidence in connection with lawsuits -- within the legal field.
“You’ve got lawyers who are doing a lot of e-discovery work and consulting companies that help with the technical aspects, and both of those areas are growing,” said Wasserman.
Wasserman goes on to say that changes to the federal rules of civil procedure in 2006 made it clear to the legal world that electronic data do represent documents that parties to a lawsuit can demand and must produce. Thus, “e-discovery.”
