by Matthew Verga, JD, Xact Data Discovery
In “The Final Countdown,” we discussed the importance of production and the primary production formats. In “The Nitty-Gritty and Other Reduplications,” we discussed other important production format considerations. In “Who Gets to Decide,” we discussed what the FRCP have to say about who selects the production format. In “Production Format Disputes,” we discussed some example production dispute cases. In this Part, we review the actual preparation of the production.
Now that we have reviewed the range of production formats available, the additional decisions that need to be made, and the rules and cases about who gets to make all those decisions, it’s time to review the actual preparation of the production in the chosen format. This process is typically a collaboration between members of the case team and the internal or external technical professionals responsible for administrating your chosen processing and review platforms.
