It’s been more than two years since a federal magistrate publicly endorsed the use of predictive coding in electronic discovery, and even though many lawyers still haven’t heard of the technology, most of the heat has gone from the debate. Whether you call it predictive coding, technology-assisted review or computer-assisted review, the term connotes use of computer algorithms to search for dispositive evidence. In this special report, we asked litigation experts to take stock and examine some of the techniques out there.
