After almost two years of planning, last week the EDI Oracle Study team released the entire dataset of over 1.6 million docs to the first wave of participants. Top performers stand to gain Oracle’s e-discovery business. A link to the press release about the data is attached to this post.
On Friday, January 11, 2013, the team had its first training call with outside counsel. Over 60 representatives from the participants dialed in. The goal of the training was to familiarize participants with the legal issues surrounding the matter. The original complaint was filed under seal — but we are working on what we can discuss in public.
Prior to and during the call participants submitted dozens of questions about the matter — mostly focused on the data load and technical issues. The EDI and Oracle team are working diligently on what we thought the technical team would be able to answer by today, but it is looking like we will respond to technical questions on Wednesday 1/16/2013.
I will post weekly with updates on the status of the study here on EDD Update. I will Tweet from @patrickoot and post on LinkedIn when I make the updates.
