David Herr and Keiko Sugisaka, attorneys in Maslon's Litigation Group, will present at Minnesota CLE's Evidence Tools for the Compleat Litigator seminar on February 29, 2016. As course chair, David will kick off the day-long event with a welcome and introduction. During the seminar, he will moderate two questions & answers sessions—one in the morning and one in the afternoon—in which the attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions to the seminar faculty.
During a morning session titled "Electronic Evidence in Its Various Forms: How to Use It," Keiko will discuss key, practical aspects regarding e-discovery and admissibility in federal and Minnesota state court civil litigation. The session will consider how discovery of electronic evidence can be encountered in virtually every kind of civil litigation – personal injury, medical malpractice, marriage dissolution, trust litigation, and every other case type imaginable.
