Online Resoources: Searchable e-Discovery Case Log

A bit more for any lawyers is K&L Gates' Searchable e-Discovery Case Log:

"K&L Gates maintains and continually updates a database containing over 900 electronic discovery cases collected from state and federal jurisdictions around the United States. This database is searchable by keyword, as well as by any combination of 28 different case attributes, e.g., on-site inspection, allegations of spoliation, motion for a preservation order, etc. Each search will produce a list of relevant cases, including a brief description of the nature and disposition of each case, the electronic evidence involved and a link to a more detailed case summary if available."
I find this interesting both for its content and for its idea of presenting information for free on the Net. Probably does not seem like much for non-lawyers but I bet it took some convincing to get this done.
