Electronic evidence stored on mobile and smartphones has only recently begun to make its way into e-disclosure requests.
Until recent years, mobile phones simply held a record of calls made and, perhaps, text messages sent back and forth.
Now they can hold a wealth of information, including emails, documents, web history and GPS location, as they are essentially small computers.
However, they also have a wide range of places to store information, from processor chips to RAM, SIM cards to internal storage. Plus, many devices have removable storage and backup solutions.
This, combined with the wide range of makes and models, makes finding the relevant information during e-disclosure more complicated than other devices.
Nevertheless, smartphone and mobile devices are now regularly included in e-discovery processes so deleting or removing data when litigation is likely will result in a heavy fine.
Indeed, Kurt Mix, a former engineer for BP, was found guilty of obstruction of justice in April 2012 after deleting text messages relating to the Deepwater Horizon spill.
