Judge Facciola on the Duty of Competency and EDD

Facciola_john2_400Lawyers must meet not just the letter of ethics rules, but the spirit of the concepts, especially when grappling with e-discovery.

That was one takeaway from the "Duty of Competency and E-Discovery," a free webinar hosted by e-discovery vendor iConect June 21, in which Joshua Gilliland, author of Bow Tie Law's Blog and founder of legal iPad app developer Majority Opinion, discussed ethics and electronic data discovery with Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

The webinar drew upon competency as defined in Rule 1.1 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct: "A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client. Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation."

According to Facciola, competency now requires "a fundamental understanding of the way information is produced." This entails: 1) some understanding of the information systems you and your client are relying upon; 2) knowing your own limitations; and 3) if you don't understand, have someone at your side, i.e. an expert, who does, he declared.

The 24/7 Andrew Peck Show

Greetings from LegalTech West Coast in relatively-smog free and sunny Los Angeles. Day one (Tuesday May 22) was full of energy and standing-room only presentations with, as usual, tons of e-discovery in the seminar rooms (and on the busy exhibit hall floor). It's not too late to stop in for Day 2 (today, May 23); it's at the downtown Westin Bonaventure and one day tickets are available if you want some education, demos, and CLE credits.

Topic A among the L.A. EDD crowd, as expected, is the closely-watched Da Silva Moore case, where U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck has ordered the use of computer-assisted coding (aka predictive coding). Law Technology News is one of those closely-watching, our most recent story is here.

NelsonOn the blawg-o-sphere, attorney Sharon Nelson, (left) president of Sensei Enterprises, has been monitoring the DSM sideshow in her ride the lightening blog. See her latest post, "Da Silva Moore: EDD's Version of Keeping Up with the Kardashians," is  here.

Peck-5-17-12-bPeck and his Second District colleague Lisa Smith gave a terrific program Thursday evening at the New York City chapter of Women in Discovery -- demonstrating his trademark wit and substantive knowledge. See "Federal Judges Preside Over Women in E-Discovery Meeting."

But Tuesday's LTWC keynote address reminded us that Peck isn't a one-trick pony judge doin' nuttin' but e-discovery 24/7/365. (He did win LTN's 2011 Champion of Technology Award). Peck's turf also has included overseeing another matter that kept lawyers Keynote1chewing their fingernails -- to say nothing of anybody with a dollar in a bank. Kevin Genirs (left). In his keynote address yesterday, "2008 v. 2012: Lessons from the Lehman Brothers," described how Peck oversaw the frantic, sleep-deprived, mega-lawyered transactions under excruciating deadlines that ultimately resulted in the sale of Lehman Brothers ("for the price of our building") to Barclays, praising Peck for recognizing the global impact of the sale on the stability of financial markets, and Peck's non-stop efforts to get the deal consummated. Genirs, who had been general counsel, investment banking, at Lehman's, was one of the 10,000 Lehman workers who had new jobs with Barclays when the sun rose the next day.

Later this morning, check out for my colleague Michael Roach's  report on "Under Fire: Defending and Challenging Technology-Assisted Review," which featured Irell's Tom Werner, O'Melveny's Jeffrey Flower, Oracle's Pallab Chakraborty, and moderator Andrea Gibson, from Kroll Ontrack (the sponsor of the Litigation Technology Track." Yes, DSM and Peck were front-and-center in the discussion!

Meanwhile, you can keep up with all the substance and occasional drama about Peck on our website's home page, and its E-Discovery/Compliance "channel" -- and right here at EDD Update. Onward to Day 2! 

Update 5/24: Oooops. Who knew there were two Judge Pecks in the Southern District of New York! Actually, many -- and Silicon Valley consultant Mark Michels, a member of LTN's editorial advisory board, was the first to advise me that I goofed. It wasn't Andrew Peck, it was Judge James Peck, of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. But you get my point.

P.S. Here's Michael's story

Compliance, Mobile Devices, & Comedy

These are three words that are generally never spoken in the same sentence, but we have two links that you will find extremely useful covering them. 

First, a group of compliance officers got together in New York recently to find out who is the funniest compliance officer in the United States. Hearing that others lay awake at night worrying about compliance, believe it or not, is pretty funny.  Check out the article and video at the Wall Street JournalIf You Think Accountants Are Hilarious, Try These Guys Search for America's Funniest Compliance Officer Is Tough; a Whoop for Dodd-Frank.


After seeing how much fun compliance can be, sign up for Virtual Legal Tech, taking place on Thursday, June 16, 2011 and hear a very frank (no pun intended) discussion about the use of mobile devices and smart phones by lawyers. LTN's editor-in-chief Monica Bay and I discuss the tipping point of law firm use of mobile devices, the need for policies and protocols to protect attorney-client communications and offer tips on how law firms can protect against lost or stolen mobile devices.  More information about the program is available here: Compliance and Mobile Computing: What Happens When Your Staff Takes the Firm Home? (CLE Eligible).

"Judge Shira A. Scheindlin’s recent ruling cited the court’s expectation for 'contemporary standards' to be followed for FOIA and Rule 34 document productions undefined including the disclosure of metadata if it is relevant to the claim, not privileged, and reasonably accessible. In a subsequent memorandum, the government argued that the ruling causes irreparable harm. [The panelists] will discuss the practical impact this ruling will have on e-discovery and FOIA responses and the nature of the controversy. Attendees will also learn how to improve the speed and quality of productions by applying Intelligent Redaction, exemption codes, and Optical Character Recognition, and generating output formats that are in line with 21st century capabilities and standards."

Slow But Steady

Climb With an approximate revenue of $2.8 billion in 2009, e-discovery vendors are slowly but steadily moving uphill again, report Minnesota consultants George Socha and Thomas Gelbmann, in their 2010 survey of EDD trends and developments.

Unlike the logrithmic rabbit leaps of the past, current growth is more tortoise-like, at the rate of 10% to 15% per year, they note in their August LTN cover story, "Climbing Back."

And in our Law Technology Now August podcast, I interview Socha and Gelbmann about the "why" of these trends, from the perspectives of law firms, law departments, and providers.
