Pre/Dicta, a litigation analytics platform that predicts how federal court docket judges will rule, is increasing to cowl new movement varieties and additionally to foretell litigation timelines.
Until now, the product, which launched in July 2022, coated solely motions to dismiss, claiming to foretell how a choose will rule with an accuracy charge of 85%.
Now, the product is increasing to supply consequence likelihoods for an extra 4 movement varieties: abstract judgment, venue switch, class certification, and to compel discovery.
It can even now predict timelines for key litigation occasions.
Notably, for these new movement varieties, Pre/Dicta isn’t predicting their outcomes, because it does with motions to dismiss. Rather, it’s modeling outcomes for particular judges, instances and courts by utilizing knowledge profiling.
Pre/Dicta founder Dan Rabinowitz calls it discovering their doppelgangers. The mannequin appears to be like not simply on the choose in your case, however for different judges who’re identical to him or comparable of their biographical knowledge.
“We’re looking at like cases for like judges,” he mentioned.
One motive that’s necessary is as a result of the precise choose in your case might by no means have dominated earlier than on a category certification. But Rabinowitz says that by discovering the choose’s twins, Pre/Dicta can present seemingly outcomes.
It does the identical for case timelines, searching for doppelganger instances to point out seemingly outcomes for the three main levels of litigation: prediscovery, discovery and trial.
“At the high level, what our analysis has shown is that those elements of cases, parties, attorneys and judges have the highest correlation to predict outcomes — higher than getting into the law and the facts,” Rabinowitz mentioned.
“In terms of finding predictive signals, that type of approach of party, attorney and judge classification yields the highest correlation of predictive signal.”
Pre/Dicta’s growth of those new options adopted from its acquisition in January of the info from shuttered authorized analytics firm Gavelytics.
Although Pre/Dicta acquired that knowledge primarily for its state protection, the info additionally included a variety of details about litigation occasions in federal court docket.
“When we were integrating the Gavelytics data with our own, we realized we could quickly augment our data to a full case lifecycle,” Rabinowitz mentioned.
Using Pre/Dicta requires solely that you simply enter a case quantity. It will then present a dashboard providing a prediction as to the probability of a movement to dismiss being granted. It can even present its evaluation of comparable instances. The Case Timeline reveals seemingly outcomes for at every of the three states of litigation and the seemingly timeline to that consequence.
The dashboard additionally reveals a Motion Model exhibiting anticipated grant charges for the several types of motions.
A Judicial Benchmarking part reveals grant charges for comparable instances for the precise choose, in addition to for the circuit and for judges with comparable biographcial profiles.
