A 1st year fucked this up in a JDG recently. Filed something with "redactions" except he just highlighted in black over the adobe file. It didn't actually redact the document and CBI was exposed briefly.

Don't make this mistake.

A third-grade level of computer literacy would tell you that just because data is displayed with the same background and foreground color doesn't mean the data is gone from the document.

If you didn't know that, I'm really gonna fuckin blow your mind now. Did you know that if you get a document in Wingdings, you can select the text and change it to a normal font like Times New Roman, and you'll be able to read it?

Fuckin magical.

the best (but autistic) way to do this is to copy the plaintext of the document into another document (ONLY plaintext; no markups), and then take the material to be redacted and replace it with [Redacted]. this is good because it removes information about the length of the excised material and not just the material itself.

once you finish, copy the plaintext again and paste into a third document, which is your final saved copy. all the markup codes in your final document (which a clever/curious opponent WILL look at) will be meaningless because it will contain no information about the redacted material - not even its volume.

Sometimes you can piece things together like you redact a number and by the length you can tell if it's one/two/three/four etc. And you can do that with common phrases too. You can never think of everything you are giving away in advance.

again, why would someone who has no need to redact anything have any use for the redaction tool in adobe? and what relevance does that have as to whether a single five character redaction is effective when you know the context and the size of the word(s) being redacted?

That's why you sometimes need to hold ctrl while making your redaction box. Instead of highlighting text or pictures, it draws a box of whatever size you wish.

Ya’ Ona,

Many courts have recognized that metadata can contain or reveal privileged information or work product. Here, the length of the redaction can be used to possibly discern information contained therein.

Some metadata may, perhaps, be privileged. What is the privilege you're claiming in, say, the file creation date?

Additionally, provide me case law on whether the length of the redaction can, itself, be privileged. Briefs are due no later than 5:00pm today on ECF.

Have some yutes help you with the computer stuff.

"this is good because it removes information about the length of the excised material and not just the material itself"

it boggles the mind how software with a redaction feature doesn't automatically change widths of redacted content for this reason

It can be less effective. If you're scanning in (particularly in grayscale or color), the scanner sometimes picks up small differences in reflectivity and color between the underlying text and the marker. If you have an auto sharpening setting, it can make the difference even clearer.

I sometimes use the adobe redaction tool but that’s because I’m in house and don’t have ediscovery software like concordance or relativity to redact and scrub metadata. What sort of ghetto ass firm uses adobe acrobat to redact docs? Also first year associates should never be redacting anything, only marking things for redaction. Making the redactions is the job for the paralegal/ediscovery vendor. I’d be pissed as the client to pay $500/hr for a first year to make redactions.
