This is part 1 in a two part podcast. Listen to one of my older “vault shows” taped as a legal audio conference CLE by Pike & Fischer’s Digital Discovery and e-Evidence publication, which was subsequently acquired by BNA. This panel was the second show we did in this format and had an incredible panel as well as a very interesting topic – the link between records management and electronic discovery. Today that link is clearer, but back in 2006, not many people were talking about this issue which is another reason this show is special. The all star panel of electronic discovery experts and electronic records management experts were the following: Carol Choksy, at the time the President of ARMA and a nationally renowned records management consultant; William Dodero, an attorney at Bayer who has been a national thought leader in the field of collecting, preserving and managing electronic records under the heat of litigation; Robert Bernard, at the time one of the leaders in Microsoft’s efforts to develop more desktop presence for records management tools; Jim Michalowicz, a Six Sigma Blackbelt and an expert on electronic discovery early on at Dupont and Tyco and currently with ACT Litigation; Tom Utiger, the owner of a Las Vegas based records management company, Data Empowerment, and one of the pioneers in developing records management technology; Jim Daley, at the time a partner in the influential virtual E-Discovery law firm Redgrave, Daley, Ragan & Wagner and currently a partner in Daley Crowley, LLP; and Linda Davis, head of Records Management at Dupont. Listen to this legal audio broadcast taped on the day the new Federal Rules went into effect as we covered one of the first shows linking effective records management as a defense to electronic discovery.
