The American Bar Association held its annual Information Governance, Electronic Discovery and Digital Evidence National Institute at Stetson’s Tampa Law Center in Tampa, Florida, last week, from January 28, 2014 to January 28-31, 2014. The faculty, comprised of judges renowned for their judicial precedents in the field of electronically stored information (“ESI”) and digital evidence, experienced practitioners and forensic experts, analyzed recent judicial decisions, key rules and proposed changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and technology issues and strategies.

Kunin, a partner at Morris, Manning & Martin LLP in Atlanta, participated in a mock spoliation hearing before U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin for the Southern District of New York and a mock Rule 26(f) meet-and-confer before the Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola for U.S. District Court in Washington D.C., involving the production and spoliation of ESI in the context of social media and “bring your device to work” employment policies. Both sessions were monitored by Magistrate Andrew J. Peck for the Southern District of New York. (Also pictured are Donna M.
