ZEK’s Garrie and Collins Publish Article on Class Actions and E-Discovery

Daniel Garrie and Tarique Collins of ZEK’s New York Office have published an article in the May 2014 issue of Bender’s California Labor and Employment Bulletin.  The article, entitled  “E-Discovery and Class Action Disputes,” explores the many advantages of using a court-appointed Special Master to reduce discovery burdens in complex class actions.  Among other things, Special Masters employ cost-effective and efficient strategies to streamline e-discovery by creating workable discovery plans, limiting costly errors, and facilitating agreement and compromise between the parties.
