Listen to Karl Schieneman, Director of Analytics and Review with JurInnov, talk about how state law and federal law can differ in electronic discovery cases. In this episode, we will be discussing New York state law and how it contrasts with federal electronic discovery practice. Our first panelist for today’s show is Mark Berman from Ganfer & Shore who has written over a dozen articles on electronic discovery in the New York Law Journal. Our other panelist is Jay Safer from Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell who has extensive electronic discovery experience and also was appointed by Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye to serve on a Special Commission on the Future of the New York State Courts as well as being on the Planning Committee for the Judicial Conference of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in 2010.
They have a unique perspective on how electronic discovery has developed in state court in New York as well as strong backgrounds working with electronic discovery in federal court in the Second Circuit. Together, we will discuss what some of the differences are and how practicing lawyers need to appreciate the differences between federal e-discovery law and state electronic discovery practice.
