A couple of weeks back Vanessa Blum, ALM’s director of newsroom innovation, passed along a string of lawsuits that popped up on our legal news feed Law.com Radar.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Radar, here’s a column my predecessor Jenna Greene wrote about it back when it launched last year under the name “Legal Radar.” The Radar feed uses data processing and what we call “algorithmic journalism” — a combination of natural language generation technology and review by human editors — to produce quick-hit summaries of new commercial litigation and corporate transactions. The way I describe it is that Radar handles a lot of the who, what, when and where questions of legal news in a way that allows me and my colleagues on the editorial team to focus on the hows and whys of what’s going on in the market.
