- C. Evan Stewart, “In-House Counsel as Whistleblower: A Rat Without a Remedy?” A great synopsis on the American case law on the retaliatory discharge tort claim. (Law.com)
- The Sedona Conference WG1, “The Sedona Conference Commentary on Preservation, Management and Identification of Sources of Information that are Not Reasonably Accessible.“ WG1 proposes six guidelines that touch on data preservation and records management. The group endorses collaboration, but its most detailed and useful guideline is on unilateral preservation decisions made in advance of dialogue. The group provides a decision tree and, notably, recommends that preservation decisions ultimately be made after a consideration of proportionality – that is, by asking whether the cost or burden of preserving not reasonably accessible data is excessive as compared to the relevance or value of the information. Brutally-awkward title and very good content as usual for the TSC. (The Sedona Conference)
- Lisa Austin, “Reviewing PIPEDA: Control, Privacy and the Limits of Fair Information Practices.” This is older – from a 2006 volume of the Canadian Business Law Journal – but I hadn’t read it and it appears to have just been posted on the SSRN. (Social Sciences Research Network)
Just heading up north for the weekend for my sister-in-law’s wedding. Should be a good time. Hope you have a good one too!
