NIXON PEABODY PARTNER JONATHAN SABLONE FEATURED IN NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL ARTICLE ON THE TOP E-DISCOVERY DEVELOPMENTS IN 2012
National Law Journal -- Views from the trenches: Trends in e-discovery -- January 28, 2013
What were the top e-discovery developments of the past year? Legally? Technologically? Here's what a sampling of leading litigators had to say.
"The monumental legal/technology development in 2012 was the broad acceptance of predictive coding. Judges and litigants are now being routinely asked to consider using computer-assisted review in the production phase of discovery. This is a ground breaking development that augurs well for those who have long advocated for the efficiencies that come with computer -assisted review of large data sets." — Jonathan Sablone, Nixon Peabody
We asked a group of litigators: What do you think will be the big issues for e-discovery in 2013?
"What is still up in the air is whether and to what extent cooperation with opposing counsel will be required in the use of computer-assisted review. Disclosure of the seed set, analytics or even raw data results? Will litigants be required to share the results, including data marked 'non-responsive' during the iterative process, with opposing counsel? Stay tuned — the predictive-coding case law is about to get very interesting." — Jonathan Sablone, Nixon Peabody
We asked a group of litigators: What are your biggest e-discovery pet peeves? Any particular behaviors drive you crazy?
"Vendors who masquerade as potential clients. Apparently, they do not realize that lawyers have access to Google and the Internet." — Jonathan Sablone, Nixon Peabody
