  • A recent decision in the influential Zubulake v. UBS Warburg LLC case defines the scope of a party's duty to preserve electronic evidence. The court's opinion, known as Zubulake IV, also addresses the propriety of adverse inference instructions when that duty is breached. The various Zubulake decisions taken together provide a helpful reference for many electronic discovery issues.
