Electronic Discovery

Electronic Discovery

Electronic discovery has gained a lot of popularity since the Enron debacle from a few years back.

Most estimations states 90% of legal evidence reside in computer systems. This includes situations involving corporate trade secrets, personal and commercial disputes, employment discrimination, misdemeanor and felony crimes, and personal injury can be won or lost solely with the introduction of recovered e-mail messages and other electronic files and records.

Electronic discovery or ediscovery refers to any process in which electronic data is searched, located and secured with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal case or for information gathering.
