Clicking Away Confidentiality: Workplace Waiver Of Attorney-Client Privilege, Adam C. Losey Nov 2012

Clicking Away Confidentiality: Workplace Waiver Of Attorney-Client Privilege, Adam C. Losey

Florida Law Review

Barbara Hall, an administrative assistant, often arrives at work an hour and a half early solely to check her personal e-mails on her employer’s computer. Afterwards, “[i]n the grand tradition of Chekhov, or perhaps ‘Days of Our Lives,’ Barbara Hall carries on a dialogue throughout the workday with her two daughters, both of whom work at an event-planning company in Cleveland and use its e-mail system for such exchanges.” When she gets home from work, Barbara continues to use her workplace e-mail account to send personal e-mails. Barbara Hall and her daughters are not alone. The average employee is estimated …


Damned If You Do, Doomed If You Don't: Patenting Legal Methods And Its Effect On Lawyers' Professional Responsibilites, Stephanie L. Varela Nov 2012

Damned If You Do, Doomed If You Don't: Patenting Legal Methods And Its Effect On Lawyers' Professional Responsibilites, Stephanie L. Varela

Florida Law Review

Imagine, before advising each client, having to confer with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to determine whether another lawyer already owns a patent to the legal strategy you wish to propose. Imagine having to pay someone so your client can follow legal advice you wish to impart. Worse yet, imagine having to forego the most favorable legal course of action for your client simply because your client cannot afford it! While these possibilities may seem outlandish, this is precisely what courts may soon decide. Judicial affirmation of the patentability of legal strategies could become a stark reality sooner …


The Perspective Of A Junior Circuit Judge On Judicial Modesty, William Pryor Jr. Nov 2012

The Perspective Of A Junior Circuit Judge On Judicial Modesty, William Pryor Jr.

Florida Law Review

I appreciate the invitation to deliver the Dunwody Lecture this year, and I am grateful that this occasion has allowed me to visit, for the first time, one of the premier law schools in this Circuit and our nation. The Levin College of Law enjoys an excellent reputation for the education of lawyers. It is the alma mater of three judges of our court, and each year top graduates of this college serve our court with distinction as law clerks. I hope this visit will be the first of many to come for me. My topic today is judicial modesty, …


Constitutional Advocacy Explains Constitutional Outcomes, Stephen A. Higginson Nov 2012

Constitutional Advocacy Explains Constitutional Outcomes, Stephen A. Higginson

Florida Law Review

In oral argument in Baker v. Carr, Attorney Z.T. Osborn, Jr., on behalf of Tennessee voters arguing that the U.S. Supreme Court should hold legislative apportionment ajusticiable issue, exclaimed that "the motto of the Supreme Court of Tennessee is Fiat justicia ruat caelum; Let justice be done if the skies should fall." With that exhortation, Osborn remarked to the Court, "We have no other place to go. Weare at the capital of the world.


Reining In Abuses Of Executive Power Through Substantive Due Process, Rosalie Berger Nov 2012

Reining In Abuses Of Executive Power Through Substantive Due Process, Rosalie Berger

Florida Law Review

Although substantive due process is one of the most confusing and controversial areas of constitutional law, it is well established that the Due Process Clause includes a substantive component that “bars certain arbitrary wrongful government actions ‘regardless of the fairness of the procedures used to implement them.’” The Court has recognized substantive due process limitations on law-enforcement personnel, publicschool officials, government employers, and those who render decisions that affect our property rights. Government officials who act with intent to harm or with deliberate indifference to our rights have been found to engage in conduct that “shocks the judicial conscience” contrary …

Effective Keyword Selection Requires A Mastery Of Storage Technology And The Law, Daniel B. Garrie Oct 2012

Effective Keyword Selection Requires A Mastery Of Storage Technology And The Law, Daniel B. Garrie

Pace Law Review

Selecting keywords for searching large volumes of electronically stored information (“ESI”) is an unavoidable, but necessary step in the process of electronic discovery. The parties to a case, or the court, may choose the terms for the search. However, an efficient alternative to both options involves a mediator, neutral, or special master with a thorough understanding of the legal elements of the case and the technology systems that will be subject to keyword search. This alternative can benefit both parties, as well as the court, because a “technology-aware” mediator can expedite an agreement that allows both parties to maintain oversight …


Social Media And Ediscovery: Emerging Issues, Adam Cohen Oct 2012

Social Media And Ediscovery: Emerging Issues, Adam Cohen

Pace Law Review

Courts, as well as private sector and government policymakers, have only just begun to address the practical litigation issues raised by the proliferation of social media channels and content. This Article comments on some of those issues as they relate to electronic discovery (“eDiscovery”) and examines how they have been approached in emerging case law. It does not address proposed legislation on a domestic and international level that may impact social media’s use in litigation, nor does it purport to be in any way comprehensive in its coverage of developments and potential developments in the legal implications of social media.


Inconsistent Responsiveness Determination In Document Review: Difference Of Opinion Or Human Error?, Maura R. Grossman, Gordon V. Cormack Oct 2012

Inconsistent Responsiveness Determination In Document Review: Difference Of Opinion Or Human Error?, Maura R. Grossman, Gordon V. Cormack

Pace Law Review

This Article analyzes the inconsistency between different document review efforts on the same document collection to determine whether that inconsistency is due primarily to ambiguity in applying the definition of responsiveness to particular documents, or due primarily to human error. By examining documents from the TREC 2009 Legal Track, the Authors show that inconsistent assessments regarding the same documents are due in large part to human error. Therefore, the quality of a review effort is not simply a matter of opinion; it is possible to show objectively that some reviews, and some review methods, are better than others.

Social Media Policies For Character And Fitness Evaluations, Jessica Belle Oct 2012

Social Media Policies For Character And Fitness Evaluations, Jessica Belle

Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts

In 2009, Florida became the first U.S. jurisdiction to articulate a Character and Fitness Evaluation (CFE) policy of examining the social media accounts of bar applicants who had demonstrated a history of questionable conduct such as substance abuse or seeking to violently overthrow the U.S. government. This policy may allow access to otherwise legally inaccessible data, which creates a risk of the bar unlawfully considering information protected by applicants’ constitutional rights. Over the past 60 years, the U.S. Supreme Court has split on whether bar organizations may constitutionally deny bar admission to applicants who refuse to answer certain questions on …
