Lawyers who are new to electronic discovery may assume things are “impossible.” Moreover, some attorneys argue “undue burden” without consulting with a third-party expert based on the assumption e-Discovery is inherently cost prohibitive.

Consulting with a third-party expert, or even performing a Google search, may prove the “impossible” is actually a common practice in many situations.

This case likely would have saved time and money if the parties could have agreed on the key custodians, had a third-party preserve the data and then had an index which could be searched based on agreed upon keywords within the same sentence. This could likely would have cost less than the protracted litigation, meet and confer conferences and a motion to compel battle.
