Privacy in a connected world – eDiscovery and the limits of disclosure

Electronic documents and devices contain significant amounts of information that can be relevant to a case.  Social media accounts, IP logs, online analytics and connected devices – all of these sources can help prove key facts in litigation.  However, these sources can also contain personal and private information, including personal health data, private communications, and irrelevant information about third parties.  Sifting the wheat from the chaff can be expensive and time consuming .  Moreover, while there are powerful tools and resources, including court applications, which can assist in producing and capturing this information, significant violations in privacy can result in the information obtained being inadmissible or even a claim for breach of privacy or special costs.

In this webinar, Daniel Reid will discuss eDiscovery tools and tips, with an emphasis on how increased judicial emphasis on privacy is changing how eDiscovery is done.

Daniel is a Partner with Harper Grey LLP and is a member of our Defamation, Privacy & Media Law group.  He has particular experience in online defamation, breach of privacy, and professional negligence cases.

In his defamation and privacy practice, Daniel has successfully obtained orders compelling websites to turn over the identity of anonymous commentators, injunctions restraining publication and an order to produce computers for forensic analysis.  He is cited by the Supreme Court of Canada (in conjunction with Mr. Baynham, QC) in the leading case concerning liability attached to “hyperlinks”.  Daniel is a sought after speaker on legal/technological issues, including Facebook and Twitter, and has appeared on the Bill Good Show on local and national news programs, including CTV National News, CBC National News, and CKNW radio.
