Paul Marshall, James Christie, Peter Bernard Ladkin, Bev Littlewood, Stephen Mason, Martin Newby, Jonathan Rogers, Harold Thimbleby, Martyn Thomas CBE - Recommendations for the probity of computer evidence

Every significant program contains many bugs that will cause it to fail to produce correct results when some particular combination of input data is encountered.

This paper sets out recommendations for a two stage disclosure process in an attempt to avoid the problems with disclosure of computer data/material in court proceedings, problems that have been exposed in two cases in England: the Post Office Horizon scandal, and the case of the nurses in R v Cahill, R v Pugh.
