Jeffrey R. Ansel Quoted in Minnesota Lawyer Article on Federal Rule of Evidence 502
Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., litigation lawyer Jeffrey R. Ansel
opines on a federal rule that provides an asylum to litigation lawyers
during the e-discovery process. Federal Rule of Evidence 502 was put in place to give attorneys a waiver in the event e-discovery documents are accidently shared, if the attorney makes attempts to correct the mistake (Thornton). In “Little-known rule provides a safe haven to lawyers,” Jeff indicates that Rule 502 is more complicated than saying a lawyer messed up. “You can’t just produce everything without trying to find and withhold privileged information solely in reliance on the rules regarding inadvertent disclosure” (qtd. in Thornton).
