Dearest EDRM Community,

Word of the Week: Foment.

In our legal tech world this week, the opioid Sackler case, one of the largest class actions in history will continue, many more regulatory events will find their way to federal court and EDRM warmly welcomes Holley Robinson back as Marketing Operations Manager. EDRM will be closed for the holiday on Thursday and Friday.

Your participation is invited to check the pulse of our eDiscovery pricing. ComplexDiscovery’s 12th semiannual survey is open through July 19, when the anonymized results will be shared.
