Daniel Garrie Quoted in Forbes About TR Investors v. Genger
Senior Managing Partner Daniel B. Garrie’s brief [CLICK HERE TO READ THE BRIEF] in the TR Investors v. Genger matter was discussed in Forbes this week:
A little-noticed decision by a Delaware court has the potential to impose huge costs on companies unless it is reversed, computer-security experts say, because the judge misunderstood or disregarded how a basic element of computer memory works. The December 2009 decision by Delaware Judge Leo Strine — involving involving an Israeli-American businessman the judge described as a real-life “international man of mystery” — penalized a company for erasing the unallocated space of its computer hard drives. Experts say retaining such data would be prohibitively expensive since the unallocated space is essentially a trash bin that is altered each time a key is tapped.
“It’s almost impossible for large companies with massive amounts of equipment to comply,” said Daniel Garrie, a lawyer and managing director at Focused Solution Recourse Delivery Group LLC , a computer consulting firm in Seattle. Garrie filed a brief with a Delaware appeals court urging it to reverse Strine’s opinion.
