Co-authors, McCartney and Horn, explain that eDiscovery has the potential of consuming a case in at least two ways. First, depending on the level of civility and collaboration between adversaries and the amount of Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”) the parties possess, the costs of production and related motion practice can dwarf those related to litigation on the merits. Second, allegations of spoliation and who failed to preserve ESI can quickly overshadow all other aspects of the case. McCartney & Horn continue their article by explaining seven steps to cost savings and efficiency.
