Speaker:
Judge Thomas I. Vanaskie was appointed to the Third Circuit Court in 2010, having served at the federal district court level in Scranton for 16 years prior. Over the course of his two decades on the bench, technology has dramatically reshaped how litigation is waged and disputes resolved. But Vanaskie has spearheaded efforts to keep the justice system up to speed. In 2005, he was selected by Chief Justice William Rehnquist to head the Information Technology Committee of the U.S. Judicial Conference, the policy making body for federal courts, a role he served until 2008. Judge Vanaskie may be best known in legal technology circles for authoring what is perhaps the most influential decision on the recovery of electronic discovery costs, Race Tires America.
