I’ve talked in the past about the method in which I have build my own personal (and electronic) law library. Tucked away in the electronic crevices of my Dropbox account is a case that every young litigation associate should spend some time reading.
In 2007, Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grimm penned a 101-page opinion on the admissibility of electrically stored information into evidence. In Lorraine v. Marketl Am. Ins. Co., 241 F.R.D. 534 (2007), Grimm gives both a detailed analysis on evidentiary issues in general and those associated with electronic evidence. If I were going to put together a hornbook on evidence, I would be half-tempted to add this case as the entire “Authenticity” chapter.
Needless to say, I believe that this is a must read. But what cases do you think make the cut as “Must-Read Cases for Young Lawyers”? (The list could be titled “Must-Read Cases for Young Lawyers Practicing in Maryland that Was Not Already Covered in Law School,” but I found that title a tad long)
