2021 eDiscovery Case Law Update
Presented by Monica McCarroll, Partner at Redgrave LLP
We are delighted to have Monica McCarroll back to kick off our series of 2022 meetings! Join us as she looks back at the top ten eDiscovery cases of 2021 and discusses how courts approached proportionality under the 2015 Rules; how privilege logging is still not uncomplicated despite the Rule 502(d) protections; and the challenges conducting discovery associated with mobile devices, social media, and other forms of communication like Slack, Teams, etc. Monica will also discuss the blockbuster sanctions case from the Northern District of Illinois, DR Distributors v. 21 Century Smoking, Inc., a cautionary tale about counsel who failed to take seriously their duty of competence when it comes to conducting discovery under the FRCP.
There is no better way to start off the year than to learn from the rulings that continue to shape the ever changing legal landscape. See you then!
A Microsoft Teams link will only be provided to those who RSVP yes. Please contact the WiE DC Chapter for more information.

Cyber Incident Response & Analysis – A Brave New World
Cyberattacks continue to increase. When they happen teams must respond immediately to control risk – including risk of financial loss, reputation damage and business disruption. Breach response teams must rapidly determine what personal or commercially sensitive information was breached, who was impacted and who needs to be notified – all under incredibly short timelines.
Join OpenText lead consultant, Tracy Drynan, as she explores how breach response compares to eDiscovery and investigation document review, the ways in which eDiscovery technology and processes can be applied to this brave new world, and what needs to be done to ease the burden of breach response going forward.

Tracy Drynan joined OpenText in 2020 as Principal Consultant, where she leads the Recon Investigations team. Tracy brings deep experience assisting leading law firms and their clients in nearly all aspects of the eDiscovery lifecycle, and has over 12 years of experience providing investigative analysis to clients. Prior to joining OpenText, Tracy served as Senior Staff Attorney, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, where she spearheaded team and strategy management, M&A data collection and interview guidance, vendor relationships and technology consulting to Cleary staff and project attorney teams.
