Usefulness of Government ESI Disclosures in Criminal Cases (6/16/12)

Readers might be interested in this guest blog at the White Collar Crime Prof Blog - Rochelle Reback, New Trial Ordered for ESI Discovery Violation - Electronic Evidence Must be Usable (6/6/2012), here.  She provides a succinct summary of the issue with electronically stored information ("ESI") and a recent decision in United States v. Stirling (SD FL No. 11-20792-CR-Altonaga), here.

I have previously discussed some issues related to mass document dumps, including in electronic format.   See, The Mass Document Dump and the Prosecutors' Brady Obligations (2/11/11), here, and Brady and Third Party Records / Databases (8/20/11), here.
