As a way of continuing to enhance the value of Electronic Discovery Law, we recently embarked on a project with the e-Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) to classify the more than 1,800 cases in our case database according to the EDRM standards. These cases will retain their existing searchable tags in addition to the new EDRM classification. To accomplish this, several EDRM member organizations will soon participate in an “EDRM Coding Challenge” to determine how to most efficiently and accurately identify the EDRM phases to be associated with each case in the database. Thanks to George Socha, Tom Gelbmann, and the challenge participants from EDRM for their contributions to this project so far and special thanks to LexisNexis and Applied Discovery for supplying the full text of the first 200 case opinions to be coded. Please watch our blog for updates on this exciting collaboration.
In the meantime, our case database remains available for your e-discovery research needs.
