Laura on 'Zubulake' and Issues With E-Mail

 Laura Zubulake spoke at the Carmel Valley Retreat last week. Everyone was impressed with her attention to detail and perseverance when her counsel was ready to throw in the towel.  At the end of the 60-minute speech, she said that after all that has happened since her case was decided, the real problem remains -- how employees use their e-mail, and that e-mail is inherently out of context.

She says companies need to vigorously train their employees on proper use e-mail from the top down. Every e-mail should be drafted as if it will be read in court.  To that end, she apprently intends to start a consulting company to address this need and work with companies to tighten how e-mail is used and hopefully avoid the so called smoking gun. The energizer bunny keeps on running!

Albert Barsocchini is a San Francisco-based consultant and attorney.
