On this recent Mother’s Day, I couldn’t help but reflect on lessons learned from my mother while she masterfully raised three sons and a daughter. She taught each of us the importance of knowledge and education, respect for others and a duty to serve those in need. While some lessons came in profound ways, many were made through what seemed like daily routine and minutia. Eat your vegetables. Go out and play. Don’t hit your brother. What I didn’t realize until many years later is that these same lessons that helped me successfully navigate schools and personal relationships growing up, could also be applied to our professional lives.

Dec. 9, 2011) which will be referred to here as simply the I-Med Pharma case.

In this specific case, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey reached a decision affirming a prior judgment by Magistrate Judge Michael Shipp. The defendant appealed the original decision by Judge Shipp not to force the plaintiff to search and review an estimated 95 million pages of records found in the unallocated space on its computer systems using keyword search terms previously agreed upon by both parties.
