Judge Peck’s Latest Word: Revisiting Technology Assisted Review (TAR)

Leading judicial voice in the field of Technology Assisted Review, US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck, is at it again. Three years after his seminal Opinion asserting that Technology Assisted Review “is an available tool and should be seriously considered for use” in Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Group & MSL Grp., 287 F.R.D. 182 (S.D.N.Y. 2012), aff'd, 2012 WL 1446534 (S.D.N.Y. Apr. 26, 2012), he is revisiting the issue of TAR’s place in the e-discovery landscape in Rio Tinto PLC v. Vale S.A., Case No. 14 Civ. 3042 (Mar. 3, 2015 S.D.N.Y.).
