Trapped In an Hourglass!

HourglassPart Two of my latest blog on Proportionality has now been published.  It is all about timing and proportionality.  In my opinion, timing is everything, in law and in life.  We are all trapped in an hour-glass. There is no getting out!  (Or is there? You will have to see the blog metadata to find out.)

The conclusion to my two-part blog also includes a useful laundry list of case citations on proportionality. Not only that, but I include the full text of the Patent Bar's Model Order on e-discovery and some commentary on it. I like it, but it needs improvement to escape the Go Fish trap of blind guesswork. Rule One is not just about speed and efficiency. Justice is the true purpose of legal search, and that requires a just-right balance between burden and benefit.
