Enhancing Practice08/13/2020The Utah Supreme Court voted unanimously to authorize a two-year pilot program to test pioneering changes to the practice of law and changes designed to address the access-to-justice crisis in America, reported Bob Ambrogi of LawSites. The changes are meant to enable individuals and entities to explore creative ways to safely allow lawyers and non-lawyers to practice law and to reduce constraints on how lawyers market and promote their services.

Enhancing Practice08/12/2020Two types of AI tools – machine learning and natural language processing (NLP – are becoming more commonly used by legal departments for contract review and negotiation, contract performance and analytics, litigation prediction and analytics, and legal research, and AI also is being used by companies more generally in recruiting and hiring, wrote David L. McCombs, Raghav Bajaj, Dina Blikshteyn, Jonathan Bowser, Eugene Goryunov, and Angela Oliver of Haynes and Boone.
Enhancing Practice08/12/2020While GPT-3 has intriguing potential, it also has inherent limitations, wrote Javid Lakha of Legatics. It cannot engage in logical reasoning or learn from its past interactions, he argued, restricting its potential application to the legal industry to tasks that require prediction and even then it faces challenges. Nonetheless, the author concluded that GPT-3 represents an important step on the path towards artificial expert intelligence in text-heavy domains such as the legal industry.

E-discovery case law

DatePostureOutcomeEntries
07/24/2020Plaintiffs’ second motion to compel discovery.Motion to compel granted in part and denied in part.McMaster v. Kohl’s Dep’t Stores, Inc., No. 18-13875 (E.D. Mich. July 24, 2020)
After ruling that defendant would produce certain requested email and denying plaintiff’s request to expand the scope of the searched date range, U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven R. Whalen, “hav[ing] no interest in going where angels fear to tread”, drew a line at adjudicating whose competing lists of search terms would be better suited for searching ESI in this matter. Instead, the court ordered that “if the parties cannot agree on appropriately limited search terms, they will share the cost of retaining an expert to assist them. If they still cannot agree, then Plaintiff may renew his motion regarding the search terms, and will provide the Court with an expert report substantiating his position.”

07/13/2020Plaintiff’s motion for spoliation sanctions.Motion denied.Bragg v. SW Health Sys., Inc., No. 18-cv-00763-MSK-NRN (D. Colo. July 13, 2020)
Following an evidentiary hearing, U.S. Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter denied plaintiff’s motion seeking imposition of spoliation sanctions on defendant for failing to preserve data in a folder on a defendant-designated computer used by plaintiff. Upon review of the evidence before it, the court concluded that plaintiff had not established that is was more likely than not that relevant evidence had been destroyed or lost. The court found there were no facts supporting plaintiff’s contention that defendant acted improperly in preserving documents; there was no evidence that defendant destroyed any relevant evidence or that any relevant evidence was lost or deleted; plaintiff (who elected not to testify at the hearing) could not say with any specificity what information she believed was being kept from her; and the undisputed evidence showed that no user-created files were deleted or destroyed by defendant. The court ended by inviting defendant to bring a Rule 11 sanctions motion.

06/18/2020Defendant’s motion to shift TAR costs.Motion granted.Lawson v. Spirit Aerosystems, Inc., No. 18-1100-EFM-ADM (D. Kan. Apr. 26, 2019)
After performing a detailed analysis, U.S. Magistrate Judge Angel Mitchell found good cause to allocate TAR expenses to plaintiff in order to protect defendant from under burden and expense. Plaintiff had pursued a scattershot ESI approach, despite cautions from the court that it might begin shifting costs. Defendant already had borne its fair share of e-discovery expenses, accommodating plaintiff’s requests, in a process that yielded low responsiveness rates. Unwilling to accept those results, plaintiff sought continued review via TAR that unnecessarily perpetuated and exacerbated ESI/TAR expenses, reached an 85% recall rate, and still yielded a responsiveness rate of only 3.3%. Given the path the parties took and the ultimate outcome, the court decided to split the overall ESI/TAR expenses roughly 20% defendant and 80% plaintiff.
