Survey Finds Litigations Too Costly Because Of E-Discovery

Sharon Nelson, of Sensei Enterprises, recently posted this nugget of information to the ABA Techshow Blog:

On September 9th, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) and the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) Task Force on Discovery released the results of a survey of trial lawyers from across the country. The survey called electronic discovery a “morass,” with 87% of lawyers stating that e-discovery is too costly. The survey also found that the excessive cost of discovery is forcing settlements, instead having settlements take place on the merits. Lawyers also believe that judges do not do enough to control excessive discovery, especially with costly e-discovery, with 89% of lawyers saying judges needed to assume a greater leadership role.

The ABA Journal article on the survey, including a link to the report, may be found here.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
