Nuix - Its All About the Data
 
I think this post gets filed under "everyone loves a good train wreck" or "how not to bill a client." I'm amazed that a three person eDiscovery team could rack up a bill more than $800,000 in 60 days. It appears that Judge Philip Bush, Fourth Judicial District of Minnesota, was more than amazed, he was also angry. "$7,400 per month to store data." "$1,000 per device to upload data from 'memory sticks' to its local server." "$426,000 for allegedly extracting 386 mailboxes." With numbers like that, I'd almost say I was in the wrong business! For certain kinds of work, I have sometimes charged more per hour, but then I never worked "18 hours a day for two months straight, including holidays."

My first thought as I read this piece was that we're headed for a modern day showdown at the OK Corral. My second thought was that I *hope* we're headed for a modern day showdown at the OK Corral. I hope we don't meekly surrender to people like FBI Director, James B. Comey and their idea that your data and my data is their data. If nothing else, this post should convince you that data should be encrypted in transit and at rest. Read more at The New York Times: F.B.I. Director Hints at Action as Cellphone Data Is Locked

Here are some interesting things to read.

Remember that silly Opinion 642 that Texas State Bar Professional Ethics Committee issued a while back? According to Law Technology News The Texas Ethics Committee has agreed to reconsider its prohibition of "officers" and "principals" in non-lawyer job titles.. Good. About time. Now move along to some more serious 2014 issues.

I'm sure you heard Apple's second round of announcements. I'll let iPhone J.D. tell you Why lawyers will love the iPad Air 2.

Christian Liipfert at infogovnuggets asks the question What's no information worth?. I am not surprised. This just continues a banking trend of providing convenient ATM cards - then charging for them. Providing convenient online statements - then charging for them. Now we can be charged for *not* getting information. If you like this policy, please send me a check for $265.13 USD. I have lots of information I wish not to send you.
