Many vendors and integrators champion their ability to solve a problem with a new technology or service but fall short of providing convincing evidence that they can support that problem solving over time and at volume.
Our quest for quality legal search requires that we keep the natural human weakness of inconsistency front and center. Only computers are perfectly consistent. To help keep the human reviewers as consistent as possible, and so mitigate any damages that inconsistent coding may cause, a whole panoply of quality control and quality assurance methods should be used, not just improved search methods.
What Special Master Grossman ordered was a controlled fishing expedition. To the extent either party had questions about the processes, procedures or even the bona fides of the other side, Grossman gave them a chance to do a little fishing. What was really novel about the idea is that she didn’t open the waters to a full-scale fishing expedition. Rather, she gave each party a limited chance to challenge one or more parts of the process to the extent they thought something smelled (well, how could I resist?) fishy.
