The requirements of full case disclosure are prescribed by Congressional Acts such as “Brady disclosure” and State Acts such as the “Michael Morton Act” in Texas.
Document Logistix has been helping District Attorney Offices provide eDiscovery to their defense. With our eDiscovery product, District Attorney Offices have been able to upload all of their case files to one CJIS compliant digital repository.
Video file copying has been the bane of existence for most District Attorney Offices. Document Logistix provides District Attorneys with the ability to offer their Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) the ability to drag a video (and other files) into a folder and automatically upload content into the DA’s repository.
Many District Attorney Offices have adopted some type of system that allows defense attorneys the ability to remotely download discovery. Depending on the system, this sometimes includes video files, and the sharing process is often referred to as eDiscovery.
At the onset, the biggest challenge was the upload of large media files. Many software programs don’t have the ability to store the multiple codecs or files over a certain size. Document Logistix software has always had the ability to do this, however it could take a really long time to upload larger files. Historically, support staff would upload these larger files and perhaps take care of a different task while they waited for the file to finish uploading.
As COVID hit, the need for the remote upload of files by the Law Enforcement Agencies became an urgent requirement. The Document Logistix team worked with our clients and configured a process that allowed LEAs to upload all of their files securely into District Attorneys' eDiscovery programs.
At first, this was a popular hit! LEAs could safely upload their files to the DAO and not risk traveling to deliver files in person. However, just as before, the burden hit the LEA employees who would spend the bulk of their time waiting for videos and large files to upload. Even worse, and failing CJIS regulations, the software would auto-logout owing to user activity.
After a couple of frustrated phone calls, Document Logistix realized a pattern was developing. We needed to figure out a way to save the painful amount of time it took to babysit the uploading of a large file. The latest enhancements to our eDiscovery solution enable the secure, compliant and continuous upload of large files.
