Federal E-Discovery: Endorsing TAR, Court Confirms Responding Party Can Determine Its Own Search and Review Methodology
October 6, 2020
Litigation partners Chris Boehning and Dan Toal’s latest Federal E-Discovery column, “Endorsing TAR, Court Confirms Responding Party Can Determine Its Own Search and Review Methodology,” appeared in the October 6 issue of the New York Law Journal. The authors discuss a recent court opinion, Livingston v. City of Chicago, in which the court denied plaintiffs’ motion to direct the defendant to follow a certain procedure for search and review of electronic information. While also providing helpful guidance on the use of technology-assisted review (TAR) as part of e-discovery, the court held that the responding party is generally granted deference in choosing how to search for and review documents—including what technology to use and how to use it. E-Discovery Counsel Ross Gotler and E-Discovery Attorney Lidia Kekis assisted in the preparation of this article.
