eDiscovery Proportionality Project

I have been asked to join an effort spearheaded by George Washington University and members of the US judiciary on eDiscovery proportionality. Proportionality considers the size of the claim and risk involved versus the amount of effort and associated cost for eDiscovery to be undertaken. The premise is that a small claim should not require a “drain the ocean” amount of cost and effort.
This project is similar to one undertaken by the judiciaries of England and Wales to create an electronic form bill of costs, which was PM’ed by a UK LOC board member.
Look for more information on this effort in this blog.
