Orchestria, a leader in electronic communication control, announced the general availability of Orchestria Legal Hold, a solution that enables U.S. businesses to comply with the latest guidelines set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) pertaining to Electronically Stored Information (ESI). The Federal Rules were amended on December 1, 2006 to address the challenges associated with e-discovery and the growing volumes of digital information which must be searched and produced.

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (http://www.uscourts.gov/rules/) govern court procedures for civil suits brought in U.S. district courts. The amendments to the rules are intended to provide greater clarity to litigants as they engage in the process of producing and sharing information prior to and during legal proceedings. These amendments govern whether and how electronic communications, including email and IM conversations, are stored or destroyed during and following legal process.
