Rule 702 and the Reliability of Evidence Obtained through Concept and Other Automated Search Methodologies

After my longest stint of silence in the history of The Datakos Blawg, this important subject has awakened me from a protracted slumber. It’s good to be back!

The link below will bring you to a very important article (well, the topic is important at least).  The test of reliability under Daubert will be the key for determining whether new search methodologies will ultimately replace traditional attorney review as the means for discovery in respect of dealing with ESI. The development will affect the litigation support technology and law firm industries, inasmuch as the former will gain increasing market share from the latter if the information derived from concept search and other search methodologies are deemed reliable and admissible. 

We pledge to keep our loyal readers abreast of common law developments applying Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence to the reliability and helpfulness of evidence obtained through new search methodologies.
