EDRM Shines the Light on Doug Austin’s New Daily Blog eDiscovery Today
MINNEAPOLIS, April 20, 2020 – Setting the global standards for e-discovery, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is pleased to celebrate the new daily blog of its global advisory council leader Doug Austin entitled eDiscovery Today, which begins today, April 20, 2020.
EDRM will host a feed of Austin’s blog on the edrm.net website and is a foundational sponsor along with Craig Ball, president of Craig D. Ball, P.C. and EDRM’s general counsel.
“Doug Austin’s writings have informed me and our greater community for nearly a decade,” says Mary Mack, CEO and chief legal technologist for EDRM. “EDRM is proud to support and promote Doug’s new blog eDiscovery Today as a foundational sponsor.”
“What would the e-discovery community do without Doug Austin’s keen nose for news and extraordinary diligence in keeping us up to date? Happily, we don’t have to find out because Doug’s daily briefings and deft reporting continue under his independent banner, eDiscovery Today,” says Craig Ball. “I’m proud to support Doug’s splendid work and prouder still to count him as a friend and colleague. Be sure to subscribe to Doug’s content. It’s a great way to start every e-discovery day.”
“I am excited to be launching my new blog eDiscovery Today and grateful for the sponsorship and support of EDRM and Craig Ball in helping me promote it to the legal community,” says Doug Austin, editor of the new eDiscovery Today blog. “As I have done for nearly 10 years, I look forward to not only continuing to write daily about discovery trends, best practices and case law, but also to expand coverage of these topics even more in eDiscovery Today.”
For nearly 10 years, Austin was editor and primary contributor of the award-winning, CloudNine-sponsored eDiscovery Daily blog, which provided fresh educational content to the legal technology community every business day, containing case abstracts, conference reviews, industry happenings, leadership interviews and more.
