"From the moment it was announced that the Georgia Bar had mis-graded bar exams from 2015 and 2016 ... people suspected there might be litigation over the incident ... Well, now there is a lawsuit." - Kathryn Rubino, Abovethelaw.com, September 14, 2016. Here is the article.
Why this particular lawsuit is getting a lot of attention is that the defendant is not the Georgia Bar Association. It's the software company, ILC Information Technologies." As Rubino reports, the litigation, represented by Brent Savage of Savage Turner, "alleges that the software company designed the process by which grades on the essays were scaled, which led to the inaccurate reporting of failure."
Why this will be an allegation analyzed by many legal experts is that already it's being discussed how any entity in the software loop for the driverless car could be one of the defendants in lawsuits. That makes litigation associated with the driverless car potentially very lucrative.
Owners, investors, employees, and strategic-alliance partners in software companies should be very concerned about this development.
