Joe Looby’s documentary, “The Decade of Discovery,” is continuing to make the rounds and may soon be screened at a venue near you.
The film details the quest of government attorney Jason R. Baron to find a better way to search White House e-mail. Baron is Co-Chair of the Information Governance Initiative and serves as Of Counsel in Drinker Biddle’s Information Governance and eDiscovery practice.
The documentary also tells the story of the late Richard G. Braman, the founder of The Sedona Conference, and a teacher who took a stand for civil justice on the electronic frontier.
Together, Baron and Braman sparked a revolution. “The Decade of Discovery” charts their 10-year journey, ultimately revealing the surprising truth they uncovered.
The movie focuses on the growth and evolution of the e-discovery industry and follows computer scientists, e-discovery gurus and federal judges—true American heroes—who have advanced the tremendous progress made over the past decade in e-discovery practices.
“The Decade of Discovery” shines a light on the ever-changing world of law and technology. The film highlights the collaboration between judges, IT pros and lawyers aiming to solve the problem of how to manage the large volumes of data brought on by the electronic age that has led to the introduction of advanced analytics into the practice of law.
