- “Sanctions for E-Discovery Violations: By the Numbers,” co-author with Dan H. Willoughby, Jr. and Rose Hunter Jones, Duke Law Journal, Volume 60, Number 3 (December 2010), surveying 400 federal court opinions involving motions for sanctions relating to the discovery of electronically stored information and analyzed for date, court, type of case, sanctioning authority, sanctioned party, sanctioned misconduct, sanction type, sanctions to counsel and protections provided by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(e). The article was cited by Magistrate Judge Grimm in Victor Stanley, Inc. v. Creative Pipe, Inc., 250 FRD 251 (D. Md. 2010) as evidence of the lack of uniform national standards governing theduty to preserve potentially relevant evidence, the level of culpability needed to justify sanctions, and the appropriate sanctions for varying levels of misconduct.
