I caught up with David Horrigan at ILTA. He is eDiscovery Counsel and Legal Content Director at kCura and gets involved in that capacity in planning for the legal practice sessions at Relativity Fest. This interview is about those sessions.
Relativity Fest takes place this year in Chicago between 9 and 11 October. In this interview, we discussed the two panels which I am involved in. One is about predictive coding (or technology-assisted review if you prefer). We have invited Karyn Harty, partner at McCann FitzGerald, who won the arguments about predictive coding in Irish Bank Resolution v Quinn, together along with Ed Spencer of Taylor Wessing and Dan Wyatt of RPC, solicitors on opposite sides in the UK Pyrrho predictive coding case to participate. US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck adds the US element and I am the moderator. What more could I ask for as a panel?
I am also taking part in a session about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the privacy shield, and other aspects of privacy, data protection and cross-border discovery. The other panel members are Ed McAndrew of Ballard Spahr, Meribeth Banaschik of Noerr, and Patrick Burke of Seyfarth Shaw. David Horrigan will moderate, as he did the equivalent panel last year.
David Horrigan takes the opportunity in this interview to say a little more about Relativity Fest, including mention of the judicial panel which he is once again moderating there. Judges Nora Barry Fischer, Andrew Peck, Xavier Rodriguez, and David Waxse are taking part as last year and this is very much something to look forward to at Relativity Fest.
