DISCLOSURE OR DISCOVERY AND EVALUATION OF EVIDENCE PRODUCED BY COMPUTERS IN LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

The Digital Evidence and Electronic Signatures Law Review from the School of Advanced Study at the University of London has published an paper containing recommendations for the probity of computer evidence.  It argues that the present approach to the disclosure or discovery and evaluation of evidence produced by computers in legal proceedings is unsatisfactory. The central problem, it says, is the evidential presumption that computers are reliable.  This presumption is not warranted and, to this end, recommendations are proposed to rectify this problem with the aim of increasing the probability of a fair trial.
