LitSavant Conformity Engine - Features

The LitSavant Conformity Engine operates by allowing users to create Logics.  A Logic is equivalent to an event handler in that it evaluates a set of tests and then performs actions based on the result of those tests.  Each logic is associated with one or more layouts and contains one or more Conditions which the application evaluates.  Each Logic is also associated with one or more Result Processes - these are actions for the application to undertake and can be set to run when the Conditions evaluate as either true or false.

The key features of the application are

  • Configuration of event handler like functionality from within Relativity using standard Relativity interface
  • Securable using the standard Relativity security model
  • Instant activation and inactivation of individual Logics
  • Ability to modify individual Logics as and when required
  • Ability to define and reuse Conditions which are stored within a Conditions library
  • Conditions can reference any custom object as well as the document object
  • Result Processes can be configured with custom messages

Current functionality allows for three basic Result process types.  More are planned.  The current supported Result Process types are:

  • Send a message to the user onscreen
  • Send an email to a designated user
  • Write data to a field

"any matter in question"

We desire to make the rule as large as we can with due regard to propriety; and therefore I desire to give as large an interpretation as I can to the words of the rule, "a document relating to any matter in question in the action." I think it obvious from the use of these terms that the documents to be produced are not confined to those, which would be evidence either to prove or to disprove any matter in question in the action;

It seems to me that every document relates to the matters in question in the action, which not only would be evidence upon any issue, but also which, it is reasonable to suppose, contains information which may--not which must--either directly or indirectly enable the party requiring the affidavit either to advance his own case or to damage the case of his adversary. I have put in the words "either directly or indirectly," because, as it seems to me, a document can properly be said to contain information which may enable the party requiring the affidavit either to advance his own case or to damage the case of his adversary, if it is a document which may fairly lead him to a train of inquiry, which may have either of these two consequences.
