TCDI Named by Court as Technical Advisor to the World Trade Center Disaster Site Litigation
TCDI was chosen as the litigation technology partner to centrally manage data associated with the World Trade Center Disaster Site Litigation.
TCDI® (www.tcdi.com), a market leader in litigation support solutions for electronic data discovery and litigation case management, announces that it has been selected to manage, and provide access to, data associated with the World Trade Center Disaster Site Litigation. In an order in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, approving the recommendation of the Special Masters to this litigation, TCDI was chosen to build, maintain and operate a database to store the Core Discovery that the parties have begun to produce.
The Special Masters to this litigation, Aaron D. Twerski (Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School) and James A. Henderson, Jr. (Professor of Law, Cornell Law School) led the vetting process with the aid of an approved technology consultant and the Liaison Counsel to the litigation. TCDI was chosen as the vendor appearing to be most proficient and economical in meeting the outlined requirements.
The order approving the Special Masters recommendation of TCDI indicated that without responsive and reliable information and reports, the parties, the Special Masters, and the Court would not have a common basis to deal with the many and complex issues that regularly arise as this immense and important litigation proceeds with its approximately 10,000 cases.
"This is a perfect match for us," says TCDI President Bill Johnson. "The capabilities of our product ClarVergence® and the skills of our project team people have been honed over years of involvement and experience managing data for large-scale, multi-case, and even joint-defense litigation." Johnson continues, "TCDI is honored to have been chosen for this project and we're confident we will provide a powerful and secure system for all sides involved in this important litigation."
