A Judge’s Guide to Reducing Costs

The e Discovery Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization, has just released a publication for judges titled,  “Judges’ Guide to Cost-Effective E-Discovery.”  Written by Anne Kershaw and Joe Howie, with a foreword by the Hon. James C. Francis IV, Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York, the paper provides a detailed, vendor-neutral look at technologies and processes that can greatly reduce the cost of handling Electronically Stored Information (ESI).

The authors contend that there is currently technology and associated best practices available today, including de-NISTing,  Duplicate Consolidation across custodians, email thread management and predictive coding, that can cut the cost of eDiscovery by 90%.
