From Taylor Swift to Lynyrd Skynyrd to the CEO of Marvel Entertainment, celebrities helped make new data discovery law in 2017.

Whether it’s potential legal sanctions for spilling coffee on a laptop, the obligation to preserve text messages, or the impact on attorney-client privilege when a lawyer receives email from a client’s work computer, these celebrities and their legal imbroglios provide valuable legal lessons for lawyers, corporate legal departments, human resources professionals—or just about anyone who uses a computer or sends a text message. These celebrity stories affect us all.
