"Aimed at law firms and corporate legal departments, Exterro's newly unveiled Fusion is essentially a portal for controlling the discovery process.

What do you think about all the EDD news? Too much hype? Or information you really need? "Wherever you turn these days, there seems to be a new CLE seminar being offered or white paper being written on the 'sweeping changes' to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as they relate to the discovery of electronically stored information. "And most of them are tied together by a common thread: an alarmist air of hype.
