From State v. Bates, where an Amazon Echo edged toward the witness stand in a murder case, to In re Search Warrant No. 16-960-M-01 with the US government petitioning Google to turn over user information, to Harleysville Ins. Co. V. Holding Funeral Home, Inc., where a hyperlink to treasure trove of data waived the attorney-client privilege, data discovery has triggered legal proceedings and made headlines at the beginning of 2017.
