Loose E-mails Sink Litigation

Loose E-Mails Sink Litigation, Corporate Counsel, October 2010 - In this article Judah Lifschitz and James McMichael explain how lawsuits and government investigations can turn into trouble fast and with little warning, especially when "E-Trouble" happens.  E-Trouble is defined as e-mails sent by a company's employees that are produced in discovery or pursuant to a subpoena and then used against that company.  The authors provide several real-life E-Trouble examples and a list of the "dirty dozen" phrases that opposing counsel may look for in the discovery process.
