Relativity-X1 – Well Timed for the Pandemic

Today’s announcement of the Relativity-X1 Enterprise integration had me puzzled at first. After all, Relativity Collect has been integrated with X1 Discovery files/emails since 2019. So what is the difference? Digging into the announcement and their documentation, my take on the new integration with X1 Enterprise Platform is the indexing of remote custodians and other data sources for in place search/collection. There are two [...]

Time to Review Covid Prevention Program – Again

In the prior administration, I highlighted the challenge of constantly changing OSHA/state/CDC website guidelines. We now have the advantage of hindsight, extended scientific research and hopefully guidance based on science rather than politics. The Gibbons alert includes a good summary checklist of prevention program elements. My recommendation is to review your existing prevention program against the minor changes and verify that you did indeed [...]

Hackers Targeting M365 eDiscovery Services

Thanks to my friend Jason Velasco for drawing my attention to the article Hidden Dangers of Microsoft 365’s Power Automate and eDiscovery Tools. Hitesh Sheth at DarkReading.com is extrapolating from a massive data collection study from 4 million Cognito Detect for Office 365 customers by Vectra.

Discovery Starts with Investigations

The focus of the Ms. Grierson’s law alert is how and why the defendant was forced to produce their legal hold notice communications as part of the spoliation determination. What I found more interesting in the source Radiation Oncology Servs. of Cent. N.Y., P.C. v. Our Lady of Lourdes Mem’l Hosp., Inc. decision is how the ‘Chair of the Investigative Committee’ conducted his investigation [...]

Good Quotes from GC’s on Evolving Corporate Legal

I miss conducting interviews and building statistics to quantify aspects of the eDiscovery Market. At least Ari Kaplan has done a good job conducting 31 interviews with Fortune 1000 GC’s for us. Most of his results and good quotes resonate with what I have heard from clients/peers over the last year. Corporate legal taking more in house with less resources. Investing in technology, but [...]

Relativity Acquires Partner Innovations, Again

The Real Reason Windows Can’t Find Bruce’s OneDrive Files

I found this article last August when I encountered the M365 eDiscovery search error  I recently announced. It is out of date on a couple points, but it has been sitting in my News list because Bruce does a very good job of putting Microsoft Search evolution in context. It is unlikely that the eDiscovery service issue I found contributed to Bruce’s erratic search [...]
