This is an interesting program called Case Cruncher Alpha which is an AI devised to predict whether a case would win or not.
The facts of the test seem to show that the AI is better at predicting a case win than the human lawyers!

Although, if you read the full article, it's early days, and there could have been other aspects that may affect the stats on either side.

Both the humans and the AI were given the basic facts of hundreds of PPI (payment protection insurance) mis-selling cases and asked to predict whether the Financial Ombudsman would allow a claim.

In all, they submitted 775 predictions and the computer won hands down, with Case Cruncher getting an accuracy rate of 86.6%, compared with 66.3% for the lawyers. Robot Lawyers are Winning [bbc.co.uk]
