A new area of ESI

ESI, or electronically stored information, is all the rage in ediscovery.  But there’s a new frontier.

“Cellphone Smudges Yield A Trove of Forensic Data,” The Wall Street Journal, November 15, 2016 A3.  It may be possible to recover enough from the smudges on your cellphone to tell a lot about you.  Not a fingerprint, yet.

Is a smudge “information”?  Skin flakes?  Sweat?

How do you govern this?  What can you use it for?  Can you store it?  Delete it?
