From Dasilva Moore to Microsoft: The Jurisprudence of Judge James Francis IV and Judge Andrew Peck

From Dasilva Moore to Microsoft: The Jurisprudence of Judge James Francis IV and Judge Andrew Peck

Presented By: The Cardozo Data Law Initiative, Relativity, and Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS)

About the Event

Few jurists have had as great an impact on the law of electronic discovery as U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck (S.D.N.Y.) and recently retired U.S. Magistrate Judge James Francis IV (S.D.N.Y.). As both judges depart the bench to begin new chapters in their legal careers, please join us for an evening to honor their accomplishments on the bench and their contributions to continuing legal education. We’ll examine their case law, including Judge Peck’s rulings in William A. Gross Construction, Rio Tinto, and his landmark decision in Da Silva Moore, and cases from Judge Francis, including Rowe Entertainment, CAT3, and his decision setting the stage for the Supreme Court’s consideration of United States v. Microsoft, in which oral argument will be held mere hours before our panel discussion. The program will include the judges’ views on e-discovery case law and the applicable Federal Rules of Evidence and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
