Steven V. Hunter quoted in article “5 Key Tools To Make E-Discovery E-asy”


Below is an excerpt:

Predictive Coding

The early days of e-discovery involved lawyers and support staff sitting in a room combing through thousands of electronic records using automated keyword searches, a costly and inefficient process, attorneys say.

That’s why there’s so much excitement around the development of predictive coding tools, software algorithms that identify which types of documents will likely be relevant to a case and which won’t be, using parameters set by the lawyers handling the e-discovery process.

And courts are increasingly embracing predictive coding, according to Quarles & Brady LLP litigation partner Steven Hunter.

“Many judges have essentially ordered the parties to use this review tool, and if the other party insists on manual review, they’ll require the other side to pay for it,” Hunter said. “The judges are pushing the technology.”
