In this session, we will demonstrate the newest advancement to the TAR workflow – High Precision Classification. It allows the users to provide highly focused feedback to the model about the parts of content that makes a particular document responsive. With this more precise input the model learns faster and more efficiently. In addition, during scoring the model analyzes documents on a finer level of granularity and provides insights to the most relevant passages back to the user. This allows for a higher level of interactivity and insights between the user and the model. With this approach you can pursue more highly refined and nuanced strategies for finding the data that matters most for your needs and achieve your goals significantly faster.

2021 has already ushered in a number of eDiscovery developments that clients and counsel should be aware of. These developments include new trends regarding the increasing incidence of court-ordered forensic exams, whether privilege log deficiencies truly merit in camera review, and counsel’s ethical obligation to disclose client spoliation events. This program will cover cases addressing these topics and spotlight recommendations for addressing the issues.

Topics covered include court decisions addressing:

  • Whether traditional family production practices should apply to communications that reference hyperlinked documents
  • When unilateral relevance redactions are appropriate
  • The circumstances when parties must produce relevant Slack data
  • ESI spoliation sanctions
  • The interplay between procedural and evidentiary rules in connection with spoliation motions

18 months after the adoption of changes to the California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP), how are attorneys, law firms, and service providers and clients coping with the increased burden these changes create? Specifically, the changes to CCP Section 2031.280(a), which eliminated the option to produce documents as they were kept in the usual course of business. Is anyone opting into the provisions of CCP Section 2016.090, the new optional FRCP Rule 26 analogue? What case law has been generated so far on these new provisions, if any? Has anyone received the new $250 document production sanction? Was it reportable?

This program will cover how certain law firms and service providers are dealing with these new hurdles when handling eDiscovery in cases under California law.

Topics covered include court decisions addressing:

  • Do these changes really “provide more streamlined and responsive document production(s)?”
  • Not slight at all — the additional burdens far exceed “the slight expense of the producing parties”, as contemplated by the state assembly.
  • Or, do these changes dramatically drive up costs for all parties…
  • New $250 sanctions, is anyone asking?
  • Why does opting into the provisions of CCP Section 2016.090 make sense? Will that reduce some of these new costs?
