‘Online courts, case management & CaseLines have moved on. We have increased our market share, our areas of excellence & our impact on digital litigation.

AI, deduplication & evidence bundles
Continuing to break new ground in digital evidence management, CaseLines is now promoting the first fruits of its new artificial intelligence research programme. Lawyers can now use CaseLines to automatically detect duplicate documents in an evidence bundle, saving up to 95% of the effort needed to remove duplicates.
As lawyers with experience in civil or family litigation know well, duplicate documents can be the bane of evidence bundling. Historically, countless hours are spent manually checking documents to remove unnecessary duplicates. This wasteful practice increases file preparation time and absorbs work hours that could be usefully employed elsewhere. This is where CaseLines steps in, providing duplicate detection at the click of a button.
CaseLines’ AI programme uses fuzzy matching algorithms to identify likely duplicates within each case file. CaseLines duplication detection is powerful enough to recognise copies of documents that have been annotated by hand, poorly scanned or even damaged.
At a glance users see a match percentage between documents and compare them side by side before choosing to include or reject them from the bundle. Unlike some deduplication solutions, CaseLines directly compares the contents of each document ensuring a high success rate in identifying duplicates. CaseLines users are already reporting up to 95% time savings using CaseLines deduplication which means less wasted effort and more time to focus on the important work for a case
