Article calls for New York to change its position on metadata

Here is an interesting article on the conflicting positions of the ABA and New York's Committee on Professional Responsibility on the possible ethical implications of searching for and examining metadata in digital documents that lawyers receive from other lawyers.  The article concludes that these conflicting positions "serve only to place New York lawyers at a tactical disadvantage" and, for that reason, calls for New York to change its approach to the issue.

Thanks to the Legal Ethics Forum for the link.
