This is part four of a five-part blog series.

Exploring Technology-Assisted Review: Hyles case

Our TAR journey concludes this week. We know now that TAR is accepted by courts, that most courts recommend at least some level of transparency in the process (though there continues to be a healthy debate regarding the level of transparency and what the federal rules actually require) and that a TAR process is not held to a higher standard of accuracy or perfection than more traditional forms of document culling and review.
