Key word search

It is unfortunate that this dispute about the extent of the key word search comes to Court after the Defendants acted unilaterally in choosing key words and conducting a search. In acting unilaterally, and in disregarding the clear advice in Part 31 Practice Direction, the Defendants have exposed themselves to the risk that the Court will conclude that their search was inadequate and that the Court should order the Defendants to carry out a further search.
