The Business Standard features a story: Indian LPO Firm Scores Hollywood Victory. The victory revolves around one of the first television ‘libel-in-fiction’ actions. The details about the case, involving “Da Ali G Show,” are in the article and here. But what is really fascinating is that the entire case was researched by outsourced help. As the article states:
“This case is said to be historic…because it is the first high-profile, US media litigation in which the legal research and first drafts of the motion papers for the defence were completed entirely offshore, by Indian attorneys at a legal process outsourcing (LPO) firm.”
I wonder what research tools these folks are using…and at what prices.
