eDiscovery Experts for the Plaintiff’s Bar

Hidden truths targeted, identified, and delivered. Plaintiff’s firms are traditionally outgunned when they face off against major corporations. In no arena is that more true than in the discovery of electronic data. Global corporations have deep pools of resources and lots of remote places where relevant electronic evidence can be hidden – or even actively destroyed. It’s a rare defendant that can’t bury a plaintiff’s team under terabytes of irrelevant data in unusable formats, all while seemingly acting in complete compliance with the court orders.

ILS levels the playing field by putting on your side eDiscovery experts including engineers, linguists, medical and science professionals together with seasoned litigators. It’s not just about the technology – it’s about the proven litigation team and industry experts who deploy that technology to best serve the plaintiff’s bar. That combination of human expertise and computer modeling enables ILS to target, identify, and deliver documents relating to the key issues and themes of your case – in any format, in any language – at lightning speed.

Forensic eCertainty

In David Mizer Enterprises, Inc. v. Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc., Case No. 14-2192 (C.D. Ill., Aug. 31, 2016), Plaintiff sued Defendant over a former business arrangement whereby Defendant used Plaintiff’s proprietary software for three years in exchange for a fee. Plaintiff granted Defendant the ability to host proprietary copyrighted pages owned by Plaintiff on Defendant’s server. Plaintiff alleged that Defendant continued to use the software after the contract had expired, and the suit alleged breach of contract, conversion and copyright infringement. During discovery, Plaintiff sent interrogatories asking for communications between various employees of Defendant. In response, Defendant stated that that employee Todd Hartsell’s computer had been re-imaged following a system crash in late 2014, and that all documents and data were lost during the re-imaging. Plaintiff filed a Motion for Sanctions for spoliation, arguing that Defendant should have known litigation was imminent as early as December 2012.

Defendant responded that Plaintiff did not depose Hartsell or any of the other employees to learn about re-imaging of a hard drive. The court denied the motion without prejudice. Defendant then filed supplemental discovery responses and indicated that subsequent investigation showed that Hartsell’s computer actually crashed in spring of 2013, not winter 2014. Plaintiff ultimately filed a separate motion for sanctions and raised the issue of the re-imaging of hard drive in the new motion, stating that Defendant’s attempt to “backdate” the computer crash was “suspicious.”

The court found that the supplemental discovery response was adequate to show that the computer crashed before the lawsuit filing and before service of discovery requests on Defendant. Plaintiff did not renew its original motion for sanctions and instead filed a new a motion that did not seek sanctions specifically for the computer. Therefore, the court declined to order sanctions for the re-imaging of a hard drive.

International litigation means more than translation

Machine translation, while important to a first pass review, many not always convey the nuances of a foreign language document. And relying on mere linguistic interpreters when facing foreign witnesses likewise misses key technical nuances that can dramatically affect the outcome of your case.
