LitSavant Conformty Engine - Technical Specification

The LitSavant Conformity Engine is a standard Relativity application. As such, it is installed from an xml file.  The LitSavant Conformity Engine is supported on Relativity version 7.3 and higher.

When installing into Relativity version 7.3 you will only be able to load the application by using the Relativity Desktop Client.  You will also need system administration privileges.

When installing into Relativity version 7.4 you can load the application using the Relativity Desktop Client or via the web interface on the applications tab.  After the application has been installed for the first time in any given Relativity instance it will also be available for installation in a workspace via the application library.  As with version 7.3 you will need system administrator privileges to perform the initial installation.

Once the LitSavant Conformity Engine has been installed there is no additional technical specification for running it other than that it needs to operate under a user account with system administrator privileges.

The internal architecture of the LitSavant Conformity Engine includes familiar Relativity Objects (Views, Fields and Layouts) as well as some custom Objects and Rules.  Taken together these objects store the parameters for the logical operations that the user wants the system to do.  A series of Event Handlers then go ahead and actually execute those operations.

ECA

Early Case Assessment: a widely abused term in which corporate data is sifted and categorised with a view to determining an organisation's exposure in the context of a dispute. The best ECA systems allow the sifting to take place within a corporation's own data store and can be used to drill down rapidly to identify the most pertinent evidentiary material and to facilitate decisions whether to litigate or settle.

"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.
