What's being said

  • At least there was an adverse jury instruction. What will give it real teeth and act as a warning to organizations to get serious about archiving electronic records, is what the jury decides and any any financial awards. It should have been obvious that this video record should be put on Legal Hold. The fact that it was mismanaged seems appalling.
