Our first episode, “eDiscovery: The Challenges of Social Media (and Other Ephemeral Data Types)”, features guest speakers Jennifer Joyce and the Hon. John M. Facciola (Ret.).  I asked them to “tell us a little bit more about themselves, what they do, and how they got there.”  Judge Facciola said:


“I’m a washed-up Magistrate Judge.  I worked as a United States Magistrate Judge in the District of Columbia for 17 glorious years.  I’ve been involved with information technology for a long time, including those 17 years, and I’ve written many opinions upon it and participated in a couple of books about it as well.  I teach at some school in Washington, DC.  I teach at Georgetown Law, where I teach evidence, contracts, constitutional law, and a special course called “Information Technology and Modern Litigation,” which I guess is a pretty good summary of my interests.”


Jennifer said:


“I am a Senior Manager with Ernst and Young.  I focus primarily on information governance and eDiscovery.  And I have been in this field for about 15 years, so I’m really happy to be here today.  I’ve frequently come across ephemeral data and social media through the course of my career.  So I’m excited to explore this with you all today.”

I would add that Jennifer is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) as well as a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM), and Judge Facciola serves on the Advisory Board of Georgetown Law’s Advanced eDiscovery Institute and on the Faculty of Georgetown Law’s eDiscovery Training Academy.
