What Changes Do We Need To See In eDiscovery? Part III

by Harold Burt-Gerrans

At the end of Part 2, I put forth an argument that de-duplication should always be done globally to bring the data set down to just unique documents. And now that you’re convinced (or should have been) that Global De-Duplication is the only way to go, I’m going to completely blow your mind by reversing my opinion and say:

“There should be no de-duplication at all, every document collected should be represented in the document review platform.”

Or at least, that’s what the end users should see…. Not everything is as it appears. Trust in magic.

My observation from most review platforms that I have seen is that they are typically structured from what I call a “Scanning Mentality,” where each document family consists of a lead document and its attachments.
