Welcome back for another week of What’s Next, where we report on the intersection of law and technology. This week, we hear from a Harvard dropout who is funding millions of dollars of litigation projects with the help of algorithms. Plus, a former trustbuster sounds off on the state of antitrust enforcement. And Facebook just can’t catch a break, with a new lawsuit alleging that the company’s “scorched earth” approach to cleaning up its Cambridge Analytica mess is crushing one of its former business partners. Let’s chat: Email me at alancaster@alm.com and follow me on Twitter at @a_lancaster3.
