Kroll Study Finds Signs of E-Discovery Savvy

Laptop_briefcase400Are in-house and outside counsel in corporate cases getting better at e-discovery?

In a recent article in Corporate Counsel, Sue Reisinger finds good news for corporate attorneys in Kroll Ontrack's yearly analysis of e-discovery opinions, particularly in its numbers on sanctions: they’re down this year, from last. Kroll's numbers are drawn from a selection of 70 state and federal e-discovery cases between January and December 2012, which are summarized, categorized and added to a database of e-discovery case law on Kroll's website.

The numbers on sanctions do look promising, with 32 percent of cases analyzed addressing sanctions for preservation and spoliation issues, noncompliance with court orders, and disputes over production — a 10 percent drop from last year's survey.

As the case breakdown continues in a release from Kroll:
• 29 percent of cases address procedural issues, such as search protocols, cooperation, production and privilege;
• 16 percent address discoverability and admissibility;
• 14 percent of cases discuss cost-shifting or taxing e-discovery costs; and
• 9 percent discuss predictive coding.

Autonomy Founder Lynch Fights Back

Lynch_mike400Mike Lynch, the founder of Autonomy Corp., this week created his own site to refute financial scandal allegations against him from Hewlett-Packard.

On the site, Lynch posted an open letter to the HP board of directors. Lynch sent that letter on Nov. 27, but now, "I am placing this letter in the public domain in the interests of complete transparency."

"It was shocking that HP put non-specific but highly damaging allegations into the public domain without prior notification or contact with me, as former CEO of Autonomy. I utterly reject all allegations of impropriety," Lynch stated. He then posed several questions about how HP has operated Autonomy since the 2011 acquisition.

We'll continue covering any significant HP/Autonomy saga updates over at Law Technology News. If you're an Autonomy customer, then what's your perspective? Feel free to comment below or email me at ekoblentz [at]
