DOCUMENT INFO
Description: This is the second of two articles based on the author's October 2007 research project for the ARMA International Educational Foundation. Since the December 2006 revised US Federal Rules of Civil Procedure went into effect, organizations have been struggling more than ever to understand litigation, or legal, holds, and, in particular, the scope of what to put on hold. Once the duty to preserve documents for a litigation hold is triggered, an organization's primary obligation is to determine the scope of what to hold and so decide what documents and information it must preserve. The law is far from clear as to what documents to hold in cases of anticipated or contemplated litigation, particularly in an age of increased complexity and reliance on electronic records and storage. Courts and experts are aware of the potentially crippling effect of forcing an organization to put a hold on all potentially relevant information.
