Controlling eDiscovery spending sprees

Electronic discovery is expensive. Identifying, collecting, processing, analysing, and finally producing electronically stored information (ESI) to opposing counsel is time consuming and resource intensive. Besides the costs of producing data, expenses are multiplied by the current adversarial nature of litigation. “In some cases, discovery becomes a tool with which to bludgeon the other side into submission,” wrote Judge Joe Brown in a recent ruling. “Rather than monitoring and moderating the process,” parties are in many cases simply “throwing gasoline on the fire.”
