Zubulake v. UBS Warburg - 7/20/2004

Case Summary: This sex discrimination and retaliation case has generated substantial attention in the general and legal press, particularly because of the groundbreaking rulings the United States District Court in New York has made regarding the discovery of e-mail evidence and the obligations companies have to preserve, in connection with lawsuits, electronically stored documents. The Federal Court has in fact issued five separate, highly significant decisions with respect to this case. The following are links to each of the five decisions:

Zubulake I
Zubulake II
Zubulake III
