On Wednesday afternoon, an all-star panel of federal judges gathered at LegalTech New York 2015 to tackle the question of what’s wrong with the current state of discovery practice and to highlight the ways in which the shortcomings in the discovery process affect justice.

The panel began on a light-hearted note with the judges introducing each other. Three are active U.S. District Court Magistrate Judges: Frank Maas (S.D.N.Y.), Elizabeth Laporte (N.D. Cal.) and Andrew J. Peck (S.D.N.Y.); the fourth just retired, John M. Facciola (D.D.C.). The discussion quickly turned to a sobering assessment of the state of civil litigation and the ability (or inability) of individuals to access to the federal court system. The panel was presented by Driven Inc., as part of the “Emerging Technology” sessions.
