New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced the formation of the Working Group on Ethical Issues Involving Metadata in Electronic Documents, a new Supreme Court Committee to examine ethical issues regarding metadata. Chief Justice Rabner named McCarter’s Sheri Pastor to serve on the group as one of its original members. Among other things, the committee will consider whether existing attorney ethics rules allow lawyers who receive electronic documents to “mine” the documents for metadata.
