Videos Gone in 60 Seconds (Days): Teams Meeting Recordings

Just a quick update as MSFT continues to consolidate storage architectures and change defaults. Per Roadmap 84580 this change will be rolled out next month.  I rarely see legal holds issued for meetings that occurred within the last 2 months, so conservative or regulated companies should extend the default retention period for TMRs to match your current base retention period. I am sure that [...]

IPRO-ZyLAB: Further eDiscovery Consolidation

Yet another acquisition in the accelerating consolidation of the eDiscovery market space. In this case there is some functional overlap offset by clear differentiation in solution strengths. In my opinion, both players peaked early in the eDiscovery market and were being left behind until recently. Maybe the ParkerGale Capital money and guidance will forge a real competitor to the evolving Relativity-Reveal-Exterro battle royal.  For [...]

Dodging Deserved Spoliation Sanctions

Although it appears that the jury will hear about the defendants bad acts, I am disappointed that the court declined the harsher subsection (e)(2) because the plaintiffs did not have evidence of intent. This ruling could temp corporations to ‘lose’ encryption keys rather than deal with evidence. I bet that if you had all the various communications between the key players you would find [...]

Cracks in Relativity’s Market Dominance?

Reveal-Brainspace continues to make traction with eDiscovery service providers. Onboarding 25 new partners in a single quarter speaks volumes and requires a mature partnership engine. UnitedLex was a Relativity Best in Service partner as recently as 2016. In fact, they are still a Relativity Certified Partner. With large discovery matters lasting 2-4 years, most clients prefer to let them age off a platform rather [...]

Reveal 10.1 – Maturity & Performance Features

In our Agile sprint driven cloud platform world major release versions usually deliver brand new workflows, UI changes or architecture updates. The Reveal 10.1 release notes detail a lot of relatively small changes aimed at improving usability and review performance. As a former product manager, I would have called this Reveal 9.3, but point releases tend to get lost in the marketing noise. While [...]

New Partnership Expands BONG Report Coverage, Audience and Resources

Just a quick congratulations to my friends Jonathan Maas and Rob Robinson for the new partnership with Project Counsel Media. There is a lot of noise and marketing fluff filling your inbox and social media feeds these days. My goal with eDJ News Briefs was to add perspective to high value items, very similar to what Jonathan has been doing with his BONG report. [...]

Still Using Concordance? CloudNine has a Free Update for You!

Three years ago CloudNine bought Concordance, LAW and EDA from LexisNexis, essentially rescuing those products from fading into obscurity. I had a great interview with Brad Jenkins in which he laid out his plans to revitalize these traditional desktop eDiscovery apps and integrate them into the CloudNine Review™ platform. It is nice to see Concordance get a real feature release after years of neglect. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
