Philip N. Yannella, who leads Ballard Spahr’s E-Discovery and Data Management Group, has written a book exploring the emerging legal issues surrounding eDiscovery in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania eDiscovery, published on August 31 by The Legal Intelligencer, is a seminal volume on the subject of how litigators can effectively manage electronically stored information. Its publication comes two years after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court adopted rule changes intended to make the eDiscovery process in Pennsylvania less complicated than in the federal system. The book is intended to help legal practitioners navigate both the new Pennsylvania eDiscovery rules and the extensive federal case law that has been published on this topic.

“Litigators face enormous pressure to make sure their clients’ electronic data is properly handled in discovery, given the tremendous growth in data volume and complexity,” Mr. Yannella said. “The development of eDiscovery law in Pennsylvania is still relatively new. This book is the first comprehensive, practical guide for legal practitioners, providing an in-depth look at a range of eDiscovery issues.”

The 11-chapter book covers topics such as the duty to preserve electronic evidence, issues in electronic document production, proportionality, cost-shifting, social media, non-party discovery, eDiscovery in criminal cases, and discovery of foreign documents. We invite you to read an overview of the book.
