Translating with AI – Elizabeth Beattie of Asian Legal Business reported that Hogan Lovells worked with Knovos to use AI to translate and scan Korean documents for a DOJ investigation, saving, according to the firm, 8,300 hours of review time.

Turning the e-discovery tables – James Beck of Reed Smith discussed implementation of a plaintiff-focused e-discovery strategy in the Taxotere MDL.

July’s Notable Cases and Events in E-Discovery – From Sidley, summaries of People v. Spicer, 2019 IL App (3d) 170814 (Ill. App. Ct. Mar. 7, 2019), Shamrock-Shamrock, Inc. v. Remark, 2019 WL 1868175 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. Apr. 26, 2019), Flynn v. FCA US LLC, 2019 WL 1746266 (S.D. Ill. April 18, 2019), and Franklin v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, 2019 WL 1130477 (N.D. Cal. Mar. 12, 2019).


1,000+ Android Apps gathered personal data after device owners denied permission –Curtis Franklin of Dark Reading reported that according to data presented at the Federal Trade Commission’s PrivacyCon 2019 in June by researchers from the International Computer Science Institute, as many as 1,325 Android apps continued to gather consumer data from devices even after the device owners denied permission to the apps. The data presented was based on work presented in a Feb. paper, 50 Ways to Leak Your Data: An Exploration of Apps’ Circumvention of the Android Permissions System prepared by researchers from the University of Calgary, U.C. Berkeley, and the IMDEA Networks Institute.

Schrems II – Gregory Bufithis prepared an overview of the July 9 Schrems II hearing in Luxembourg’s Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). The central question before the CJEU, as described by Bufithis, is whether U.S. law on access of national security agencies to personal data of non-nationals (the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Service Act) breaks European data protection laws and if so whether that invalidates currently legal data transfer mechanisms including standard contractual clauses, Privacy Shield, and other contractual arrangements. A non-binding opinion is expected by Dec. 12 and a full decision by early 2020.

Industries seek uniform federal privacy law – Esther Slater McDonald of Seyfarth Shaw reported that on July 11 a coalition of 27 industry groups representing a diverse group of businesses across the economy sent a letter to the Senate and House commerce committees, asking Congress “to act quickly to adopt a robust and meaningful national consumer privacy bill to provide uniform privacy protections for all Americans.”

2018–2019 NACD Public Company Governance Survey results – The National Association of Corporate Directors Risk Oversight Advisory Council has published Current and Emerging Practices in Cyber-Risk Oversight, the results of its 2018–2019 NACD Public Company Governance Survey. The top three insights, according to the report, are (1) at its core, cybersecurity is a people issue, and boards should tailor their oversight activities accordingly, (2) cyber-risk reporting to the board should evolve to keep pace with the changing needs of the organization, and of the board itself, and (3) boards should ask how their companies are engaging in information-sharing within their own industries and with the public sector.

Is insurance coverage for cyber claims barred by a war exclusion? – That is the question posed and discussed in a recent IAPP article written by Judy Selby of Judy Selby Consulting and Peter McLaughlin of Womble Bond Dickinson.



Biometric privacy legislation – Gerald Maatman, Jr., Thomas Ahlering, and Andrew Cockroft of Seyfarth Shaw discussed the status of biometric privacy litigation across the US, with laws:


Clifford Chance selected AI platform – Artificial Lawyer reported that the global law firm Clifford Chance has chosen Elevate’s legal AI platform, ContraxSuite, to help power its new data science lab.

NIST seeking comment on draft plan for federal engagement in AI standards development – The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced that it is seeking public comment on a draft plan for federal government engagement in advancing AI standards for U.S. economic and national security needs. Although not directly tied to legal technology, these nascent standards undoubtedly will come into play.


Recent e-discovery decisions

2/12/2019 – Massachusetts Superior Court Justice Mitchell Kaplan determined that documents had been produced inadvertently as defined by the clawback agreement entered into by the parties and ruled that the receiving party needed return or destroy them. One document was produced after the litigation support firm assisting the producing party failed to properly execute an agreed-upon search protocol. When the producing party realized the error, it asked for return of the document. The second document consisted of a scanned document apparently accidently added to another document and mistakenly treated for purposes of review as a single document.  The Court decided that “the disclosure while arguably preventable with more careful attention was nonetheless inadvertent.” Vigor Works v. White Skanska, JV, CA 16-02146-BLS1 (Ma. Superior Ct. Feb. 12, 2019).

7/8/2019 – U.S. Magistrate Judge A. Kathleen Tomlinson ruled that the parties should share the cost of restoring data from backup tapes. The court reached that result by determining that the data at issues was not readily accessible because it is is a format (stored on backup tapes) that needs to be restored or otherwise manipulated to be usable. If the requesting party wishes to have the responding party restore data for 3 custodians and 18 mailboxes from 21 backup tapes at an estimated cost of $26,430, then per the order the requesting party must bear 30% of the cost and the responding party 70%. Tafolla v. County of Suffolk, No CV-17-4897 (E.D.N.Y. July 8, 2019).

Information for EU and Swiss Residents

  • Our Legal Basis for Processing: Generally, we rely on our legitimate interests in order to process your personal information. For example, we rely on this legal ground if we use your personal information to manage your Registration Data and administer our relationship with you; to deliver our Website and Services; understand and improve our Website and Services; report reader analytics to our authors; to personalize your experience on our Website and Services; and where necessary to protect or defend our or another's rights or property, or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, safety or privacy issues. Please see Article 6(1)(f) of the E.U.

Please see the "Your Rights" section of this Privacy Policy immediately below for more information about how you may request that we limit or refrain from processing your personal information.
  • Your Rights
    • Right of Access/Portability: You can ask to review details about the information we hold about you and how that information has been used and disclosed. Note that we may request to verify your identification before fulfilling your request. You can also request that your personal information is provided to you in a commonly used electronic format so that you can share it with other organizations.
    • Right to Correct Information: You may ask that we make corrections to any information we hold, if you believe such correction to be necessary.
    • Right to Restrict Our Processing or Erasure of Information: You also have the right in certain circumstances to ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or to erase your personal information.

  • Timeframe for retaining your personal information: We will retain your personal information in a form that identifies you only for as long as it serves the purpose(s) for which it was initially collected as stated in this Privacy Policy, or subsequently authorized. We may continue processing your personal information for longer periods, but only for the time and to the extent such processing reasonably serves the purposes of archiving in the public interest, journalism, literature and art, scientific or historical research and statistical analysis, and subject to the protection of this Privacy Policy. For example, if you are an author, your personal information may continue to be published in connection with your article indefinitely. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
