TAR Talk Podcast

Hosted by John Tredennick & Tom Gricks

TAR Talk is a 15 minute (or so) podcast coming live from our virtual front porch, where Tom and John (sometimes with guests) yak about issues relating to technology assisted review (that’s what the TAR part means) and just about any other legal technology topic that comes to mind. During these podcasts, Tom and John will share their knowledge, talk to their guests, discuss current research and practices and try to nail one issue of importance to legal professionals in each session. They will also offer bad analogies, even worse jokes and make fun of themselves, sometimes in response to your questions. The only thing they won’t do (if you are lucky) is offer advice on how to fix your car.

Hear how Tom Gricks, the lead attorney on the Global Aerospace case, obtained the first order authorizing the use of technology assisted review (TAR) over the objection of opposing party.
Learn about the birth of continuous active learning from Dr. Jeremy Pickens, Catalyst’s chief scientist. He details the differences between TAR 1.0 and 2.0 and how different systems work.
John Tredennick and Tom Gricks review a recent decision In Re Domestic Airline Travel Antitrust Litigation, 2018 WL 4441507 (D.D.C. Sept. 13, 2018), a multidistrict class action litigation. Was the plaintiff’s side forced to review non-relevant documents (a document dump) or was it human error?
Should proportionality arguments allow producing parties to get away with poor productions—simply because they wasted a lot of effort due to an extremely bad algorithm? Dr. Bill Dimm, founder and CEO of Hot Neuron (the maker of Clustify software) joins our hosts to discuss whether one can do “good” TAR with a bad algorithm.

Tom Gricks

Before he joined Catalyst, Tom was a trial lawyer with the law firm Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, where he was a partner and chair of the e-Discovery Practice Group. During his tenure, he acted as lead e-discovery counsel in Global Aerospace v. Landow Aviation, the first case in the U.S. to authorize the use of TAR over the objection of opposing counsel. Tom’s work on that case was highlighted in a 2013 Wall Street Journal article, "How a Computer Did the Work of Many Lawyers." In his spare time, Tom hides out in a cozy cabin in the woods, a few hours from Pittsburgh where neither phones nor computers work well but the huntin’ is good.

John Tredennick

John was a partner and trial lawyer with Holland & Hart before he founded Catalyst in 2000. Older than he looks in this picture, John has written or edited eight books and countless articles on legal technology topics, including (with Tom and others) TAR for Smart People (2nd ed.), a User’s Guide to TAR and several others for the ABA and private publishers. Showing that you can fool some of the people some of the time, John has won a number of awards--from being named an e-discovery trailblazer to legal visionary to top 100 global technology leader. When he is not sitting on his virtual porch, you will find him competing on the national equestrian show jumping circuit or playing drums and singing in a classic rock jam band.
