It doesn’t take reviewing the results of one of the recent national studies on cell phone usage to realize that that most Americans and most adults throughout the industrialized nations of the world now have cell phones. As such, the collecting the ESI on cell phones should be at the top of the checklist for almost any litigation in 2008. However, given the fact that I spend most of my waking hours discussing eDiscovery and ESI collection and computer forensics, I am still surprised that the potential smoking gun data on cells phone is either over looked or under estimated.
In a recent blog posting titled “Don’t Forget the Phone Messages“on ediscoveryinfo, Brett Burney points out several recent high profile cases in which the ESI on cell phones were the basis for the case (i.e. the smoking gun).
Does anyone else have any other examples of either cell phones providing the “smoking gun” evidence or cell phones being overlooked to the determent of the case. Further, does any have any interesting computer forensic case studies in regards to retrieving ESI from cell phones.
