Koenig and Freeman publish in Hastings Law Journal

July 13, 2022

HRC executive director Alexa Koenig and Tech, Law, and Policy director Lindsay Freeman co-authored "Cutting-Edge Evidence: Strengths and Weaknesses of New Digital Investigation Methods in Litigation," in the UC Hastings Law Journal. The piece delves into the risks present with the use of OSINT investigation methods in litigation, with an eye towards challenging the investigator, the methods, the evidence, the analytical findings, the testimony, and the presentation of information. "Our critical perspective is not meant to hinder the growing use of digital open source information," Koenig and Freeman wrote, "but rather to ensure that such information is introduced into courtrooms responsibly and effectively."
