Discover InfoShare’s e-Discovery Portal!

The next step in streamlining the criminal discovery process is here! InfoShare’s eDiscovery Portal, a cloudbased service hosted by CSI Technology Group on Amazon’s government cloud service, provides the capability for each county Prosecutor’s Office to have its own individual, secure cloud basedsite for posting discovery. The Portal’s design accommodates multidefendant cases and cases with multiple discovery packages for each defendant.

If you purchase the eDiscovery Portal, you will be provided with a “Send to Portal” button right next to the “Burn to CD’ button inside the Discovery tab. This is your access to a faster and cheaper way to deliver discovery to the defense attorney. Instead of burning the discovery to a disc and manually delivering it to the defense, the Prosecutor’s Office will simply post the discovery package directly to the Portal, where it is then available for the defense attorney to download. This eliminates all the leg work after the discovery package is created. A Discover InfoShare’s e-Discovery Portal! If the defendant gets a new attorney, the Portal allows for revocation of access of the first attorney and access for the new one. The Portal fulfills the basic obligation of the State in providing criminal discovery to the defense. Since the system is webbased, discovery is available 24/7/365 to the defense attorney. A record is maintained in the InfoShare case of all discovery documents that were delivered. Since all of the discovery documents are maintained in the InfoShare™ case, there is no need for the Portal to carry a discovery package forever. At the end of the case, the Portal allows for the expiration of the discovery packages and removal of documents after a defined time period, controlled by the user. With the InfoShare eDiscovery Portal, the defense attorneys get their discovery earlier in the process and the Prosecutor’s Office gets an efficient, resourcesaving, ongoing system of discovery management and delivery. substantial portion of the resources that have up to now been dedicated to the PreArraignment Conference event will be freed up for reallocation.


The Portal also allows the Prosecutor’s Office and the Courts to manage the defense attorney’s access to discovery completely paperlessly. A defense attorney seeking discovery in a criminal case registers on the portal and submits a request through the portal for access to the discovery packages in the case. After the Prosecutor’s Office and/or the Courts have verified the attorney’s representation, what is traditionally known as the “Entry of Appearance,” the defense attorney is then able to access the case’s discovery packages via the Portal. The Portal acts as a delivery system and only provides the ability to download discovery documents. The defense attorney must download the packages onto his or her own computer and cannot read or alter the documents on the Portal. This ensures that the handling of the discovery in the case by the defense is confidential.
