A big part of legal representation is identifying and getting key documents from your client. This can sometimes be a bit like pulling teeth, but its critical that you get necessary documents. Here are some helpful guidelines for getting all the documents that you need from your client.  Unlike a document request from the opposing side during discovery, getting documents from your own client is much more fluid and can happen throughout the representation. These requests can be based on either… [read post]

In the case relating to the Biomet Hip Implant Litigation (In Re Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant ProductsLiability Litigation). The case involves over 19 million documents and is a great example for why plaintiffs must get involved early in document discovery. The defendants applied a combination of keyword searches and predictive coding to arrive at a collection under three million documents from the over 19 million with which they started. It sounds as if the methods of search and culling were not… [read post]

I get questions on this several times a week. There is lots in the press and communications going out that notifies homeowner associations that there is a new body of law that has been signed into place regarding THE DAVIS STIRLING COMMON INTEREST DEVELOPMENT ACT. What you need to know is that it is not a “rewrite” in the most technical sense, meaning the laws have not changed in a material way. They have simply been written in language that the legislators feel provides more clarity and several… [read post]

Today's predominant word processors are Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect. MS Word is also offered as a web-based application or Saas (Software-as-a-Service).  However, there is a newer type of document collaboration, where numerous people have access to the same document so that they can all contribute and monitor changes made by others.  These types of applications are becoming more common.  For example, Google has begun to offer its own Google Word Processor called "Google Docs" --… [read post]

I amend and restate a lot of documents. I have recently had boards ask me if they can send the documents out via email or make them available to members without having to send out the whole set of documents which is a lot of paper, especially if they send documents called “drafts” out with the ballot and when approved, modify the documents and then send them out as final documents. There is nothing in the California elections law (Civil Code Section 1363.03) that requires the Board to… [read post]

Updating and Restating Governing Documents As A Project Homeowner associations pay big bucks for amending and restating the governing documents. It may seem like an easy task but if you do it right it is an involved process, and cooperation and participation by the board and the attorney for the association is needed. If there is a committee involved, the members must be committed to doing the work.  It takes a village! Some boards rely too heavily on the attorney and do not review drafts and… [read post]

Many more association board members are apparently opting on the side of saving trees (or postage) and asking the question “Under the California elections law, when voting on restatement projects, may the Board send out the ballots by mail and make the documents available for “grabbing” electronically instead of having to send out a pile of 60 or more pages to the members?   My answer would be “Yes”.  If a board has a better way of presenting the documents to… [read post]

As I’ve previously written, the Rules of Court require parties to a BC Supreme Court Civil Lawsuit to disclose relevant documents to opposing parties.  Some documents are privileged and need not be exchanged but their existence needs to be disclosed and these documents need to be described “in a manner that, without revealing informaiton that is privileged, will enabel other parties to assess the validity of the claim of privilege“.  Failure to do so can result in exclusion of the documents… [read post]

In “Your Law Firm’s DMS: Put the Past Behind You,” Brian Ruthruff and Dodie Edelstein identified new features lawyers can expect in a document management system (DMS) today. In this follow-up, they have advice for making the successful leap to a new DMS.  Upgrading your existing document management system, or designing an entirely new law firm DMS, does not have to be a huge drain on time and resources.

Real Estate Crash Has Resulted In Many More Forms and Disclosures The spring real estate season is coming to an end, and buyers are leaving closing rooms with not only their keys but a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome. The reason for sore forearms and wrists is the voluminous stack of documents which are now required to be signed and notarized at every Massachusetts real estate purchase or refinance closing. One of my opening “break the ice” lines at closings is to suggest that the… [read post]
