In Facts & Findings’ December issue, our paralegal Amy Johnson contributed the article, “Alexa, How Did This Happen” with Vicki L. Casper, a paralegal for the restaurant management company Sizzling Platter, LLC.
This fascinating article focuses on the increase in subpoenas for AI devices and data, reminding readers about the volume and depth of information our smart devices capture during seemingly normal, everyday tasks.
