Minnesota Lawyer’s Exemplary Evidence: “Digital Evidence Moves to the Cloud”

Digital Evidence Moves to the Cloud
Online accounts like Google, iCloud, Dropbox and others are emerging as best evidence sources when cellphones, tablets and laptops are destroyed, damaged or lost. Is it time lawyers look for evidence in the cloud first? (Deposit photos)

Our first article was published today in Minnesota Lawyer under the series title “Exemplary Evidence“.  Many thanks to the paper’s editor, Barbara Jones, for her trust in me and Carney Forensics.  We are proud to have the privilege of contributing a monthly column to Minnesota’s finest legal industry periodical.

Our first column notes the prevalence of iCloud and Google cloud accounts connected to users’ smartphones today.  It advises lawyers on the important role cloud evidence plays in litigation and investigations often equal to the data recovered from iPhones and Androids.  I explain in the article how cloud evidence is rapidly becoming “best evidence” for civil and criminal cases and is now routinely admitted in federal and state courts across the U.S.  Please check it out here:
