Smith Anderson Hosts North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys eDiscovery Seminar
RALEIGH, N.C. – Smith Anderson recently hosted the North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys eDiscovery seminar held on April 27, 2012. Smith Anderson partner William H. Moss was one of the presenters at the seminar, along with Gray Wilson of Wilson Helms & Cartledge, Joe Stavola of Sharpless and Stavola, and Jason Newton of Yates, McLamb & Wehyer. Approximately fifty medical malpractice lawyers, insurance carriers, claims adjusters, and risk managers attended the three-hour seminar. Mr. Moss’s presentation was on the newly enacted changes to the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure as they relate to eDiscovery.
According to Mr. Moss, “Many lawyers have yet to appreciate some of the sweeping changes that were included in the recently enacted revisions to the NC Rules of Civil Procedure, especially as related to eDiscovery and how discovery scheduling conferences are to be conducted. The most important change is that “electronically stored information” is now explicitly included in the Rules as being discoverable, and this can include everything from emails to computer files.”
