Captures sender, recipients(s), date and subject from all messages included in a single email document. Greatly speeds production of privilege logs while substantially reducing cost of preparation.
EzPriv was designed and developed for the purpose of automating the process of creating privilege logs for use during the review process in electronic discovery document productions. Automating the generation of privilege logs from the litigation support database will save countless hours in building the privilege logs and will mitigate the substantial risks of waiving privilege that have occurred recently in a number of cases.
EzPriv will accept as input a directory of OCR/extracted text files or a delimited text file containing the OCR/Extracted Text of your tagged privileged documents from the review database. The user can then generate a line by line privilege log, individually listing all pertinent information to the privileged communication together with their family attachment(s), if any, and the bates number ranges associated with those records.
EzPriv is revolutionary. It is the first utility of its kind to aid the review team by automating the privilege log process in a manner consistent with the Rules of Procedure and that the Courts are now requiring, i.e. , separately logging all the senders and recipients to emails claimed as a privileged communication together with their family attachments. This again, is an arduous task for the paralegal or litigation support department given the short amount of time given for the privilege review and the enormous quantities of emails that are often involved with electronic discovery productions today.
