UNITIZATION: The Process of Separating Logical Boundaries from Physical Boundaries

Bob Sweat, a talented writer and eDiscovery expert is back today with another guest blog. Bob, as most of you know, hails from the Great State of Texas where everything there is bigger - even the cases. In the previous issue, I wrote about scanning as most cases still include a paper component; lots of it in some cases. As these two subjects (scanning and unitization) intertwine so closely it would be a good idea to tuck these guidelines on unitization away for future use with last issue’s article on scanning. The purpose of unitization (logical document determination or LDD)... Read more →

"The authenticity of a found document:

Hmm, interesting problem that can torpedo a case. Does your firm's IT department employ effective document management policies? "What seems to be the problem? Your IT organization has put in place proper procedures [PDF] for deleting electronic documents, including e-mails. So it is no surprise when as a result of litigation your e-discovery process cannot turn up a particular document. However, to everyone's surprise the document turns up on your CEO's laptop. This is a very possible scenario. You must know whether the document is admissible as evidence in a civil lawsuit. "What do you need to know? Evidence is... Read more →

"Document Imaging: Keeping It Simple"

Author Tony DeLoera, the chief technology officer at Ice Miller, describes how to manage document imaging the right way: "Simplicity. This was the guiding principle in our selection of a document-imaging system. In early 2005, Indianapolis-based Ice Miller was overrun with paper. With 225 attorneys, and three branch offices in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Naperville, Ill., we decided to leverage the decision to change our office copiers as an opportunity to gain more control over our workflow. "We needed a document-imaging system that our attorneys and other professionals could use with little or no training. We wanted our users to... Read more →

Make sure you can do your part to help prevent "death by e-discovery." Here's the complete article by lawyers Jeanine Bermel & Art Smith: "While no one course of action is appropriate for all corporations, there are some basic steps to prepare for that first e-discovery challenge, none of which guarantee success. On the other hand, failure to recognize the challenges of complying with the e-discovery rules is more likely to lead to disaster. "Here are a few thoughts on recommended survival tactics to maneuver through the e-discovery minefield. 1. Update and enforce your records management policy. "Prudence and good... Read more →

"A Mouse on a Mission in the Document Maze"

Just what I've wanted: a computer mouse that smartly finds what I want in a mountain of documents: "The new mouse does all the work of a standard model, while also letting the user skim rapidly through lengthy documents to reach a desired spot in seconds. It does this with an unusual scroll wheel that can be flicked with a forefinger; the text on the computer screen immediately starts flying past, but stops on a dime when the wheel is tapped. The speed is adjustable to let users see exactly where they are in the document. "The mouse, called the... Read more →

The difference that thorough e-mail review and analysis can make in the outcome of litigation is dramatic, and attorneys cannot risk overlooking key evidence that can make or break a client's case. "More and more legal cases today involve the submission of e-mail as material evidence -- creating a phenomenon that law firms and corporate enterprises are struggling to manage. Across the industry, costs and workloads are spiraling out... Read more →
