Electronic discovery (eDiscovery) is the discovery of electronic information for the purpose of litigation, investigations or other legal proceedings.
eDiscovery plays an important role in our country's legal system. Whether it's a criminal or civil case, courts must look at all of the evidence to determine who's at fault and who's not. Being that so much of our daily lives is stored in electronic format, this has given rise to the eDiscovery market.

Courtrooms often rely on evidence such as this to determine an appropriate ruling.
