CT Summation hosted its first Best Practices Summit in Washington, DC on May 20, 2008. Attendees came from Washington, Baltimore, Toronto, Miami, Alabama and New York for this capacity-attendance summit.
The CT Summation Best Practices Summit featured a keynote address by Michael Berman, Esq., of Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan & Silver, LLC. Mr. Berman presented “The Information Explosion and ESI in Litigation,” covering recent case law and the challenges of information inflation. Mr. Berman is a well-respected attorney who served for seven years as the Deputy Chief of Litigation at the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, where he handled a number of high-profile cases, and also practiced civil litigation as a partner in two Baltimore law firms.
The afternoon featured 6 breakout sessions, with technology topics such as, “Putting the Pieces Together: e-Discovery from Processing to Production,” “Techniques for Transferring Cases” and “Your Transcript Toolbox.” These sessions provided valuable experience and insights in using CT Summation products in a more intimate set-up that facilitated Q&A.
inData Corporation joined CT Summation for a mock deposition and trial entitled, “Running the Trial Preparation Gauntlet with Technology.” This session focused on the life of several email messages and a voicemail, starting with a mock deposition of a defendant, followed by a meeting between an attorney and trial consultant for a strategy session, and finally a contentious discussion over admissibility, including a motion hearing to exclude ESI in the cross-examination of the defendant at trial.
The CT Summation Best Practices Summit received excellent reviews from attendees. Don’t miss your chance to attend the next Summit being held in New York City on June 19, 2008.
