The Detroit chapter of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) hosted a screening of “The Decade of Discovery” along with a panel discussion and social hour on Thursday, July 16, at the Detroit offices of Dickinson Wright. “The Decade of Discovery,” a documentary by Joe Lobby, tells of a watershed moment in history in which the explosive rise of information technology threatened some of the most basic American values.  It also recounts how a handful of lawyers, judges, and scholars recognized the looming threat and how they took the first major systematic steps to rein it in.  Among those taking part in the program were (left to right)?Scott Petz of Dickinson; Garry Pate, director in the Digital Forensics Practice at Stout Risius Ross; U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Stafford, Eastern District of Michigan; Doug Kaminski, senior director at Huron Legal; and Natalie Yaw, assistant general counsel at Meridian Health.
