Judge Shira Scheindlin to Keynote IE Discovery's Third Annual Electronic Discovery Symposium for Government Agencies

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 30, 2010) - IE Discovery, a leading provider of comprehensive Litigation Support and Discovery Management solutions to the legal community, will be presenting its 2010 Electronic Discovery Symposium for Government Agencies on October 20, 2010 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. IE Discovery offers the program exclusively for government attorneys, records managers and FOIA and IT personnel and is an invitation-only event. This year's program will be highlighted by remarks from The Honorable Shira A. Scheindlin, United States District Judge, Southern District of New York.

Judge Scheindlin has written the opinions in many important e-discovery cases, including the seminal Zubulake case. Her recent opinion in Pension Comm. of Univer. of Montreal Pension Plan v. Bank of Am. Secs., LLC addressed the issues of parties' preservation obligations and spoliation in great detail, holding that failure to search properly for and preserve electronic or paper records will result in the spoliation of evidence. Judge Scheindlin will deliver the keynote address.

The Symposium agenda will feature judges, electronic discovery professionals, and attorneys. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola, United States District Court for the District of Columbia, the author of many opinions relating to electronic discovery, and Jonathan M. Redgrave will discuss The Facciola-Redgrave Framework for Asserting and Challenging Privilege Claims in Modern Litigation.

Jason Baron, Director of Litigation, National Archives; Joan Fina, Office of General Counsel, Federal Trade Commission; David Gaston, Office of General Counsel, Department of Agriculture; Maura R. Grossman, Counsel, Wacthell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz; and Miriam Nisbet, Director, Office of Government Information Services, National Archives and Records Administration are also speaking.

The complete program agenda will be available at www.iediscovery.com and will encompass a wide range of topics and viewpoints from a cross-section of agencies and is designed for government attorneys, records managers, IT, FOIA personnel, program managers, regulatory personnel, CIOs and others impacted by electronic discovery.
