Bryan Koenig shares some interesting insights here on Law360 about how a D.C. federal judge criticized the Justice Department for what he described as an “overly broad demand” for Google to turn over information on approximately 25,000 documents that the firm had redacted or withheld in antitrust probes over the last 14 years. Certainly, interesting reading!
I won’t comment on the case itself, but as I always contend, addressing issues early and using tech wisely is essential when it comes to disclosure. Of course, this is a US case, but it does bring some interesting thoughts to mind here in the UK, not least because we are in the midst of the Disclosure Pilot Scheme being trialled in the UK. I wonder what a case like this might look like under the DPS?
