An Assistant General Counsel of a consumer products company called Chuck regarding discovery in a pending class action. Two different service providers had already said the project required the collection of three Terabytes of ESI containing an estimated 9 million documents.
Chuck interviewed key players and evaluated the sources of ESI, narrowing the collection to 400 gigabytes, or about a million documents. After effective and defensible further filtering, the AGC had about 45,000 documents to review, most of which were responsive.
Estimated savings: $400,000
