Rupert Murdoch Scandal = e-Discovery Story

The scandal of Rupert Murdoch, the world’s most powerful media mogul, is essentially a story of e-discovery, the seamy dark side of e-discovery that operates underground and in violation of the law —  the world of hackers.

Spy The e-Discovery Team blog this week explains what phone hacking is, a few of the most common ways hackers do it, and how you can protect yourself. I also go into the ethical duties of lawyers to act competently to preserve confidentiality and the new ABA proposed model rule 1.6(c) which says:

(c) A lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, information relating to the representation of a client.

Finally, I include a link to one of the funniest, and most insightful comedy routines I've ever seen Stephen Colbert do reporting on the Murdoch scandal. He concludes his bit with a report of his hack into the voice mail of Rupert Murdoch's attorney. Could this happen to you?
