eDiscovery Assistant, a legal research platform for e-discovery case law and resources, is today introducing AI-generated case law summaries.

The feature uses ChatGPT to deliver one-paragraph summaries of court decisions, with the goal of enabling legal professionals to more quickly gauge the relevance and implications of a decision.

“By incorporating AI-generated summaries, we’re providing our users with immediate insights, ensuring they don’t have to wade through extensive decisions,” said Kelly Twigger, the Colorado lawyer who is the founder and CEO of eDiscovery Assistant. “This is not just a feature — it’s a game-changer,”

The company said that the summaries have been developed to focus on the core e-discovery issue in a case, rather than the broad ruling.

“This ensures users get precise insights into relevant court decisions,” Twigger said. “This is just the beginning of our journey with large language models, and with our closed data loop approach, we’re navigating the challenges of accuracy and privacy.”

Founded in 2016, eDiscovery Assistant is a research database of e-discovery case law and resources such as rules, checklists and forms, as well as a learning center to provide practical knowledge about the field.

Its founder, Twigger, is the principal at ESI Attorneys, a law firm dedicated to e-discovery, and a nationally known e-discovery attorney, author, and speaker.
