It must be some consolation for Apple Computer that the company's annual report is going to be published during the slowest news week of the year. Given the uncomfortable admissions about its past stock options practices -- and the cost to the company -- that Apple will have to make in the delayed SEC filing due by Friday, less public attention is probably a good thing. <http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1167127308611> Five IT Blind Spots That Shut Lawyers Out
Wednesday, December 20, 2006 In a world where even the most senior of partners can now be found typing away on a laptop, an observer could mistakenly believe that personal computing is as straightforward as using the average toaster.

Jennifer M. Moore and Gregory S. Kaufman
Thursday, December 21, 2006 Attorneys nationwide are preparing to practice under the new electronic discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which became effective on Dec. 1. The amended rules require parties in civil litigation to confer about e-discovery issues at the earliest time practicable. See Amended Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f). One of the matters that parties should be prepared to address during this initial discussion is the assertion of privilege claims as to e-mails that are part of larger "strings" comprising both privileged and nonprivileged e-mails. Focusing on this issue before discovery begins may enable attorneys to decrease the costs of discovery and reduce the risk of court-ordered sanctions. <<http://www.law.com/ltn/pubArticleLTN.jsp?id=1166609206148>>

Davis 12/19/2006
Many of my colleagues in the archival community and I were dismayed by the decision of the Carpenter family to auction off the priceless personal collection of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball. Naismith's granddaughter, Hellen Carpenter of Chesterfield, decided to have his papers and relics auctioned after sports organizations were unable to raise funds to purchase the entire collection. Naismith collection brings in $715,000
By Stephen Deere
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH Here is the story.
Less than a year ago, a treasure trove of historical documents and relics from basketball inventor James Naismith sat in his granddaughter's Chesterfield basement.
Now it appears that at least some of the items are on their way to the William L.
