Embracing the Upside of Technology Assisted Review (TAR) in E-Discovery

Created on July 30, 2015

Solutions Consultant

It was not terribly long ago that electronically stored information (ESI) collection and subsequent review looked a lot like this: gather up printed emails, scan them into the system with optical character recognition (OCR) set to “on," and through a rudimentary set of search tools, try to find responsive content. Or, perhaps those “paper emails" showed up in a big binder and the task was to flip through one-by-one, classifying the item, its keywords, and potential relevance in an accompanying spreadsheet which would then be turned over to a supervising attorney. Believe it or not, I... Read More

Surge in FOIA Requests Compelling Government Agencies to Bolster E-Discovery Processes

Created on July 30, 2015

Content Marketing Manager

It may not grab headlines like some of the other e-discovery trends, but there is no larger e-discovery issue facing government agencies than the surge in Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. FOIA is a federal law enacted in 1966, establishing the public's right to obtain information from government agencies. Several states have followed suit with similar public information laws. As awareness of FOIA has grown, the number of requests has skyrocketed. We recently published a primer on FOIA with a little more background on the issue. In a new white paper, sponsored by Exterro and... Read More

Are you Prepared to Locate Responsive Data for E-Discovery?

Created on July 23, 2015

Content Marketing Manager

Many legal professionals are starting to embrace the notion that e-discovery is a business process, which can be measured, managed and optimized. The greatest progress is being seen with “left-side" e-discovery activities, such as identification, preservation and legal hold. The more data-centric, “right-side" e-discovery tasks, such as collection, processing, search and review, are still largely being handled as isolated steps in the process, many of which are outsourced to expensive third parties. This may be due to companies feeling they lack the resources to handle e-discovery... Read More

New Deloitte Study Reveals Government Agency E-Discovery Struggles

Created on July 21, 2015

Content Marketing Manager

One thing you can always count on this time of year is interesting e-discovery studies and surveys. We wrote last week on Norton Rose Fulbright's 2015 Litigation Trends Annual Survey. New interesting summer reads, which we'll likely cover in the near future, include FTI's Measuring Your E-Discovery Program Against Industry, 2015 study and Gibson Dunn's Mid-Year E-Discovery Update. While these reports focus mainly on corporate litigation trends, Deloitte recently published its Ninth Annual Benchmarking Study of Electronic Discovery for Government Agencies. There are few reasons... Read More

Corporate Lawyers vs Federal Judges: Two Perspectives on Litigation Spending and E-Discovery Trends

Created on July 16, 2015

Content Marketing Manager

When we released our Federal Judges Survey on E-Discovery Best Practices & Trends in February we weren't quite sure what kind of response to expect. We knew the data was insightful (especially the judges' view on the general lack of e-discovery competency among attorneys), but to our knowledge, there had never been a judges survey on e-discovery. Would people actually care what the judges had to say? Thankfully, and in hindsight, perhaps not all that surprisingly, the response to the survey was extremely positive. The survey report has generated hundreds of downloads and been the... Read More

The E-Discovery Revolution Starts with the ‘Who’

Created on July 10, 2015

If you read my May blog post, you'll understand that my general perspective is that we are in the midst of something so young and with so much evolution yet to go, that it's a revolution of sorts…an E-Discovery Revolution! Revolutions are scary, chaotic, satisfying, and challenging. We often don't have answers and we are making things up. We are making pretty good guesses and trying to follow evolving rules, recommendations and best practices…but we don't really know if it's exactly right. Any of this sound like you? In my coming blog posts, my goal is to (hopefully)... Read More
