Reflecting decades of litigating experience, Plugged In: Guidebook to Software and the Law was originally written by prominent federal judge Francis Allegra, along with Daniel Garrie, a nationally recognized computer specialist who is also a litigator and e-discovery expert. After Judge Allegra’s death in 2015, Garrie continues as author with a number of contributors.

Written for both lawyers and judges, this work makes highly technical concepts understandable by:

  • Describing how hardware and software interact.
  • Explaining how software functions on the Internet and the Cloud, as well as in mobile technology, cybersecurity, e-discovery, and forensics.
  • Discussing how software is being treated by the courts, focusing on important Supreme Court precedent and recent cases such as Alice Corp. and Limelight, and its intersection with the Federal Rules concerning electronic data.
  • Providing valuable insights into how lawyers and judges can educate decision makers in cases involving software, including how best to use experts and their reports, white papers, and technical advisors.
  • Including thousands of up-to-date technical and case citations to aid your research.
  • Offering a handy glossary.

Plugged In has been cited in the federal courts and in the Tenth Edition of Black’s Law Dictionary (for terms “Internet,” “software,” and “algorithm”).
