Legal Hold and Preservation at Center of Apple/Samsung Battle

As Apple and Samsung battle over design patents, in Apple, Inc. v. Samsung Elecs. Co. Ltd., No. C 11-1846 LHK (PSG) (N.D. Cal. July 25, 2012), it is clear that legal hold and preservation of evidence may be a key factor in the outcome of the case. Once again a high profile case showcases eDiscovery and the importance of proper collection and preservation of evidence. Technology is now in place that can properly place user files and email in a forensically sound archive for safekeeping. One of the key challenges in the Apple Samsung case was that the email server had an auto-delete feature turned on which purged potential email evidence, overriding the legal hold order, according to a schedule defined by the email administrator. Using a legal hold archive, once a policy is defined and implemented all responsive data will automatically be securely copied into the archive regardless of the auto delete configurations on the email server. Relying on an active email server for the preservation of email is risky as this environment is not designed for legal hold. As these high profile cases continue to showcase the eDiscovery and legal hold challenges, it is clear that organizations will begin to focus on their internal litigation support and archiving platforms and define an environment that will ensure accurate and reliable processes
