Too often, voicemail is forgotten when it comes to instituting a litigation
hold. This can be disastrous, resulting in potential claims of spoliation.
Even if unfounded, just a mere allegation of spoliation can be extremely
expensive and time consuming. With technological advances like smartphones
and voice over IP, voicemail can be saved longer, even if unintended. Its
shelf life is not necessarily driven by the need to make room for future
messages like it once was.

With all of the ink spilled about the evidentiary power of e-mail,
voicemail has slipped below the radar. These simple guidelines can help you
stay on the right side of voicemail if placed in a situation where a
preservation obligation attaches (for more on when that obligation
attaches, see my earlier piece on when a litigation hold is triggered,

"The problems of our economy have occurred not as an outgrowth of
laissez-faire, unbridled competition.
They have occurred under the guidance of federal agencies, and under the
umbrella of federal regulations."
Senator Ted Kennedy, in defending trucking deregulation in 1978.
