Hot Topics at the Traffic Violations Bureau

Faculty:
Michael Block, Esq.
Hon. Ann Lundin

Description:
The unique rules of the New York City’s Traffic Violations Bureau make it a somewhat difficult arena for fighting traffic tickets as opposed to other traffic courts in New York State. Most important, there are no plea bargains at the Traffic Violations Bureau. All summonses that have been pleaded Not Guilty must be adjudicated.

This course is designed to help lawyers represent clients who retain them for traffic
court tickets. The course may include speakers such as an Administrative Law Judge and a Police Officer. We will also discuss frequently issued tickets, such as speeding, improper use of cell
phone/portable electronics, and failure to yield to pedestrians. The statutory and factual elements of these charges will be reviewed.

Presented By:
Talia T. Page, Esq., Training Specialist
Tim McCorry, Computer Forensic Engineer

Description:
During this valuable CLE presentation, attendees will learn about data forensics, which is the process of collecting electronic documents in a defensible way that maintains all of the important hidden data those documents can contain (“metadata”). This metadata can often make or break an eDiscovery case. Attendees will learn how data can be processed once it has been collected in preparation for review, as well as best practices for reviewing documents electronically. Finally, we will discuss the methods and options for producing this discovery to an adversary. The entire presentation will include a focus on cost-saving techniques and methods for more efficient review.

At the conclusion, attendees should have a better understanding of the technologies and options available in the eDiscovery process, which could prove invaluable going forward into case planning or the next meet-and-confer.
