Once the information about the documents is held in a computer database, a team of lawyers can search for incriminating patterns, locate a letter that contradicts direct testimony previous given, find the smoking gun. So runs a powerful argument in favour of computerised litigation systems.
But few British firms have fifty-thousand-document cases, and even fewer have a smoking gun waiting to be discovered. The fact that so many firms are going ahead with pilots or operational systems perhaps indicates more of a desire to be seen to be abreast of technology, rather than the calculated expectation of direct return.
The 17 chapters of Advanced Litigation Support & Document Imaging deals with the implications of litigation systems, analyzing the support factors, financial factors, document imaging, workflow and case management applications.
