Television’s most popular fictional lawyers discuss predictive coding

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), never the most popular of federal agencies, is now facing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit for an incident involving a jar of gourmet peanut butter. Frank Hannibal says that he was trying to take a jar of Crazy Richard’s peanut butter through airport security when a TSA worker objected to the layer of oil on top of the peanut butter and pulled him out of line.

Privacy advocates seized this lawsuit as a call for stricter privacy controls, citing advances in cloud computing.
