Curtis Litigation Dept. co-chair Eliot Lauer, counsel Jason Gottlieb and associate Alyssa Astiz collaborated on an article, “Document Preservation Notices 4th Amendment Violation?” published online by Law360. The authors address the new and rising phenomenon of regulatory retention notices and their real-world monetary impact. The article proposes several potential solutions to find the proper balance between legitimate regulatory needs on one hand, and the right to dispose of one's own property absent a subpoena or court order on the other.
