Thanks for sharing this article. Document review is not a new phenomenon in the law. The term "big data" has been applicable to e-discovery for well over a decade. Attorneys just never used that word to describe massive data sets, in part because the purpose of a document review and big data analysis are very different. Technology assisted review has helped to curb the massive amounts of data by coding documents. For the foreseeable future, however, attorneys will have to continue to work of making final judgment calls regarding responsiveness, even if predictive coding does some of the work of narrowing the data set. --Shannon Harmon, J.D., Jones Harmon Communications, Inc.
