i
Judges’
 
Guide
 
to
 
Cost
Effective
 
E
Discovery
 
Foreword
by
Hon.
James
C.
Francis
IV,
United
States
Magistrate
Judge,
Southern
District 
of 
New
York 
 
The
 
discovery
 
of 
 
electronically
 
stored
 
information
 
(“ESI”)
 
has
 
become
 
vital
 
in
 
most
 
civil
 
litigation
virtually
 
all
 
business
 
information
 
and
 
much
 
private
 
information
 
can
 
be
 
found
 
only
 
in
 
ESI.
 
At
 
the
 
same
 
time,
 
the
 
costs
 
of 
 
gathering,
 
reviewing,
 
and
 
producing
 
ESI
 
have
 
reached
 
staggering
 
proportions.
 
This
 
is
 
caused
 
in
 
good
 
part
 
by
 
the
 
sheer
 
volume
 
of 
 
ESI
 
but
 
also
 
by
 
the
 
reluctance
 
or
 
inability
 
of 
 
some
 
lawyers
 
to
 
adopt
 
cost
effective
 
strategies.
 
This
 
guide
 
provides
 
an
 
overview
 
of 
 
some
 
of 
 
the
 
basic
 
processes
 
and
 
technologies
 
that
 
can
 
reduce
 
the
 
costs
 
of 
 
processing
 
ESI.
 
Courts
 
may
 
not
 
want
 
to
 
adopt
 
all
 
of 
 
the
 
recommendations
 
contained
 
here,
 
but
 
they
 
are
 
worth
 
careful
 
consideration.
 
For
 
 judges
 
who
 
are
 
inclined
 
to
 
be
 
involved
 
directly
 
in
 
managing
 
ESI
 
issues,
 
this
 
guide
 
provides
 
information
 
that
 
can
 
be
 
shared
 
with
 
counsel
 
to
 
help
 
curtail
 
ever
escalating
 
discovery
 
costs.
 
For
 
 judges
 
who
 
are
 
more
 
comfortable
 
letting
 
the
 
parties
 
manage
 
the
 
details
 
of 
 
e
discovery,
 
it
 
will
 
help
 
separate
 
fact
 
from
 
myth
 
or
 
fiction
 
when
 
lawyers
 
advance
 
conflicting
 
arguments
 
on
 
electronic
 
discovery.
 
At
 
the
 
very
 
least,
 
lawyers
 
for
 
all
 
the
 
parties
 
should
 
be
 
encouraged
 
to
 
be
 
familiar
 
with
 
the
 
principles
 
contained
 
in
 
this
 
guide.
