(Litigation) Hold On! S Toolkit for Properly Preserving ESI

Presented by: Nicole G. Wells, Esq.

The digital age has forced healthcare institutions to become increasingly more reliant on technology when it comes to data retention. Digital or electronically stored information (“ESI”)may be unintentionally altered or destroyed with a click of a button. Attorneys, Risk Managers, IT Departments, and other stakeholders should familiarize themselves with state and federal ESI preservation requirements. We will cover Victor Valley Union High School District v. Superior Court of San Bernardino County and how courts interpret when the duty to preserve ESI attaches. Failure to preserve ESI and physical information can result in devastating consequences that may make or break your case.


  • Understand duties to preserve evidence for litigation hold.
  • Recognize restrictions on litigation holds.
  • Understand potential ramifications of failure to preserve relevant physical and electronically stored information.
