As both the volume and variety of electronic communication increase, identification, preservation, and production of relevant data, and protecting personal information, are a growing challenge. The Alex Jones case will serve as a starting point for discussing Model Rules 1.1, 1.6, 3.1, 3.3, and 3.4 and other recent matters where sanctions or major fines were issued relating to discovery or information governance.
