June 14, 2012

Annalyn G. Smith and Nathan L. Mechler presented on the topic titled,¬†“Like Loose Lips, Emails Can Sink Ships,” at the Schmoyer Reinhard Breakfast Briefing.

The presentation focused on how emails can be the smoking gun in a lawsuit and can create liabilities for companies. Companies have policies for retention of e-mails and use of company computers, but e-mail content is not the focus. The presentation addressed actual cases which turned on e-mails sent without careful consideration of content and without protection of privilege and the presenters provided best practices for e-mail correspondence and discuss admissibility of e-mails at the courthouse.
