DISH® Announces Topic For 2012 "Best In Class" EDiscovery Legal Research And Writing Competition

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DISH (DISH Network L.L.C., a subsidiary of DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH)), has announced the topic for its second annual DISH® "Best in Class" eDiscovery Legal Research and Writing Competition. This year, law students will be challenged to address the question of "Under what standard should a court subject an employee's non-business personal computing activities (e.g., social media, documents stored on a personal computer, and/or personal email accounts) to civil discovery involving her or his employer?"

"We are pleased DISH's 'Best in Class' writing competition is encouraging students to build knowledge and gain exposure to the practices of Information Governance, eDiscovery, and their application within the law. In an age of radical technological advancement and data inflation, information management is playing an increasingly critical role in civil litigation," said R. Stanton Dodge, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, DISH Network L.L.C.

Mr. Dodge, as well as the Information Law firm of Redgrave LLP, will judge the submissions, evaluating them based on originality, quality of legal and technical analysis, quality of writing, and citation of authority and support for arguments. The DISH® "Best in Class" eDiscovery Legal Research and Writing Competition is open to all students who are enrolled in an ABA-accredited law program in the United States at the time of submission. Contest submissions are due by Oct. 13, 2012. The author of the first-place selection will receive a $2,500 cash award. Two runners-up will also be selected and will each receive a $1,000 cash award.

"There is a definite trend within social media and mobile devices that is causing corporations around the world to reassess their information management and discovery strategies," said Victoria Redgrave, Managing Partner, Redgrave LLP. "We enjoy being part of a competition that challenges law students to begin examining how these variables affect litigation now and, more importantly, how they will continue to affect civil litigation in the future."

Last year's winner of the writing competition was Amanda Jaret of St. John's University Law School who wrote, Electronic Discovery of Social Media Data: What's Not to "Like"? The runners-up were Cindy Pham of The University of Denver Sturm College of Law who wrote, Proportionality in E-Discovery: Relevancy, Burdens, and Discretion, and Scott Lucas of Faulkner University Jones School of Law, who wrote, The Well Pleaded Discovery Request: Adding Discovery Requests to Pleadings.
