I don't often blanket repost other blogs that I see, however, in
this instance, I think it is appropriate. Venkat, writing for

recent ruling in the In re: Easysaver Rewards Litigation(S.D. Cal.

This is one of those great posts that gets to combine cloud
computing law with privacy law with political intrigue.

Be prepared: I'm going to get on a bit of a soapbox. I

"technology litigation". And, to be frank, that term is
really composed of several different subsets of the law. One
such subset is privacy law. Over the next several blog...

Your friendly neighborhood technology lawyer here: As
you know, I'm a bit of a technophile and I've been watching the

A colleague of mine brought to my attention two recent federal
cases in which the courts elected to deny motions to compel
electronically stored information (ESI). In Kay Beer

For anyone involved in blogging or interested in information
technology law or Internet privacy law, there is a strange case
with some important lessons which was handed down by the District
Court Western District of Kentucky last week. The case is

For my first foray into the world of blogging, I think the
important first step is to answer the standard journalism questions
necessary for any good story, namely, the who, what, when, where,
and why. Sorry for the length. I promise that future blogs
will be shorter. Without further adieu, here...
