3PB intellectual property barrister Mark Wilden analyses Genius Sports Technologies Ltd v Soft Construct (Malta) Ltd [2022] EWHC 2637 (Ch). In the case, which took place earlier this month, the judge – Mr Justice Marcus Smith – departed from the Business & Property Courts disclosure regime, instead ordering the adoption of “massive overdisclosure”. Mark examines the judgment and how rather than burdening litigants and causing “eyeball review”, technology means that “this judgment gives something of a reality check for the age of digital working”.
