An international corporation was accused of unfair employment practices. The suit claimed that the corporation had been engaging in these activities for years. The corporation was asked to produce relevant data regarding their hiring and promotion practices over a period of 20 years. Potentially relevant data was not only stored in e-mail systems and file servers but in outdated legacy databases as well.
D4 identified relevant databases, legacy and current, that contained potentially relevant data. The data was then extracted and placed into review environments for later production. After preparing a defensible collection protocol, D4 collected electronic data and e-mails from hundreds of custodians at multiple locations.
