Probably Reasonable Search in eDiscovery

by   Herbert L. Roitblat, et al.

In eDiscovery, a party to a lawsuit or similar action must search through available information to identify those documents and files that are relevant to the suit. Search efforts tend to identify less than 100 documents and courts are frequently asked to adjudicate whether the search effort has been reasonable, or whether additional effort to find more of the relevant documents is justified. This article provides a method for estimating the probability that significant additional information will be found from extended effort. Modeling and two data sets indicate that the probability that facts/topics exist among the so-far unidentified documents that have not been observed in the identified documents is low for even moderate levels of Recall.
