Fair Lawn, NJ (PressExposure) July 08, 2011 -- Problems and Solutions for e-Discovery
When most companies kept their records on paper, finding relevant documents in legal discovery was a much simpler task. Lawyers would sift through a pertinent filing cabinet and find what they needed for a case. There could be a large number of paper documents to examine but not usually anything unreasonable. That reality has changed, though. Most companies have come to use electronic media as a means of storing records. With email especially, there are far more documents generated than ever before, and they are located not simply in filing cabinets, but throughout a whole system, sometimes on outdated media that is difficult access. E-discovery, when attempted using the same manual methods used for conventional discovery, has proven quite challenging and expensive for a number of companies.
There are solutions already on the market that aid the e-discovery process, allowing IT staff to perform searches throughout a mailfile using keywords and other parameters. The IT department does not consist of legal experts, however, and it has other matters it could attend to than e-discovery. E-discovery, like conventional discovery, is a task that should be left up to legal department.
The newest module of the ReduceMail Pro, ReduceMail Pro e-Discovery is arepeatable Lotus Notes search and retrieval e-discovery tool that can find specific documents in the email datastore. What makes it unique, however, is that it is designed to be used by the legal staff. With an interface that requires only minimal training from IT, ReduceMail Pro e-Discovery should allow the legal department to perform e-discovery with a greater degree of independence from IT than ever before. Legal staff can also place holds on particular users so they cannot delete their email if it is being searched or if it is needed for a case.
