Craig Ball on Nuix Proof Finder and smaller cases

I have written more than once about Proof Finder, the version of the Nuix processing technology which can still be bought for $100, all of which goes to a charity involved in child literacy.

Armed with a copy of Proof Finder, lawyers and investigators can process up to 15 GB per matter.  In an article called Proof Finder: Touch the Monolith, Craig Ball draws attention, as he has done several times before, to the enormous benefits which this gives to lawyers managing smaller cases (not that 15 GB is exactly small, as Craig Ball observes).

I point you to the article mainly for the summary list of sample functions which can be performed in Proof Finder and for the story Craig tells of a case in which he encouraged his opponent to get a copy of Proof Finder in order to try and resolve disagreements which had arisen about culling and search. “We got more of the documents we sought and far less junk”, he says, which ought to be enough for most people.

The other point which Craig makes is that Proof Finder is ideal for lawyers who need to “peek” at the evidence in the way one did in the days when the client brought in a folder of documents for an initial assessment. These days, the shortest and smallest collection of documents requires more than flicking through the pages, and Craig argues eloquently that Proof Finder is a means of getting this which is accessible to everyone.

Why not get a copy now and see for yourself?
