The Sedona Conference has published the public comment version of The Sedona Conference TAR Case Law Primer, a comprehensive review of court decisions addressing the use of technology-assisted review (TAR) and civil discovery.
Although the primary focus is inevitably on US decisions, much of the content will be of application outside the US. Subjects covered include the circumstances in which a court can compel a party to use TAR, where the parties are required to disclose or negotiate their TAR methodology, and the relationship between TAR and traditional methods of document culling and review.
Sedona is encouraging public comment on the Primer as an initial step in developing guidelines for principles for the use of advanced search and review technologies in legal proceedings.
The primer may be downloaded free from the Sedona Conference website here.
