*1 WHEREAS, on October 15, 2012, the Court entered an Order providing that, “[a]bsent a modification of this order for good cause shown, the parties shall (i) retain a single discovery vendor to be used by both sides, and (ii) conduct document review with the assistance of predictive coding;”
WHEREAS, the parties have proposed that HOA Holdings LLC and HOA Restaurant Group LLC (collectively, “Defendants”) retain ediscovery vendor Kroll OnTrack for electronic discovery;
WHEREAS, the parties have agreed that, based on the low volume of relevant documents expected to be produced in discovery by EORHB, Inc., Coby G. Brooks, Edward J. Greene, James P. Creel, Carter B. Wrenn and Glenn G. Brooks (collectively, “Plaintiffs”), the cost of using predictive coding assistance would likely be outweighed by any practical benefit of its use;
WHEREAS, the parties have agreed that there is no need for the parties to use the same discovery review platform;
WHEREAS, the requested modification of the Order will not prejudice any of the parties;
NOW THEREFORE, this –––– day of May 2013, for good cause shown, it is hereby ORDERED that:
(i) Defendants may retain ediscovery vendor Kroll OnTrack and employ Kroll OnTrack and its computer assisted review tools to conduct document review;
(ii) Plaintiffs and Defendants shall not be required to retain a single discovery vendor to be used by both sides; and
(iii) Plaintiffs may conduct document review using traditional methods.
