Description: A BOOK FOR ALL READERS. Zubulake's e-Discovery is a 21st century version of David & Goliath set on Wall Street that resulted in the establishment of landmark law. It is an inspirational account of a woman standing on principle, fighting for her rights, persevering against a formidable opponent, and achieving vindication, accountability, and justice. The voice of the plaintiff, particularly the plaintiff in a litigation with far-reaching consequences, is seldom heard. I was the plaintiff in a case ("Zubulake") that resulted in a historic jury verdict and a series of legal opinions that influenced the practice of law. Zubulake's e-Discovery is my story. The next time you read about e-mails in the news, you will think about my case. Zubulake began as an employment-related lawsuit against a financial-services giant and became important on several fronts. Zubulake culminated in a historic jury verdict, one of, if not the most significant verdicts for a single plaintiff in an employment discrimination case. Zubulake transformed the legal industry by moving beyond conventional thinking and focusing on advances in technology that impacted business and the ways evidence was created. Three years of litigation resulted in the issuance of a series of precedent legal opinions (the "Zubulake opinions") concerning the discovery of electronically stored information (electronic discovery or "e-discovery"). No longer does the process of legal discovery begin with document requests or the filing of a complaint in court. It begins with an organization's information management policies and procedures (information governance). E-discovery has matured into a multi-billion-dollar business, one of the fastest-growing legal specialties and segments of the IT industry. The name Zubulake has become synonymous with best practices in e-discovery. To become familiar with e-discovery requires, at a minimum, a reading of the Zubulake legal opinions. To truly appreciate e-discovery requires knowledge of how those opinions came to be. Thousands of articles have been written by others about my case- but never has the story been told from my perspective-the perspective of the plaintiff. Zubulake's e-Discovery is my account of how and why I did what I did. It is illustrative so readers can better understand concepts; answers how, who and what questions; describes a real-world situation against which theory can be tested; and discusses controversy-both successes and failures. Zubulake's e-Discovery is so much more than about landmark law, information governance, and e-discovery. It is a story about principle and perseverance. It is inspirational, credible, important, and unique. It shows what can happen when an individual sets out to do the "right thing." It is a story that will appeal to any reader who cheers for the underdog. For more visit www.LauraZubulake.com.
