While technology-assisted review has yet to be fully utilized in the U.S., its use is widely recognized by the courts, whose acceptance traces back to Judge Peck’s 2012 ruling in n Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Group. This isn’t the case in the UK, where the English High Court first recognized TAR this past February in Pyrrho Investments and MWB Business Exchange v. MWB Property and others, in which Master Paul Matthews allowed parties to proceed with using predicting coding in the case.

This is the first time where an order to use predictive coding was granted by the High Court.
