Professor Dr. Trevor Bench-Capon of the University of Liverpool Department of Computer Science has published Representing Popov v Hayashi with Dimensions and Factors, forthcoming in Artificial Intelligence and Law. Here is the abstract:
Modelling reasoning with legal cases has been a central concern of AI and Law since the 1980s. The approach which represents cases as factors and dimensions has been a central part of that work. In this paper I consider how several varieties of the approach can be applied to the interesting case of Popov v Hayashi. After briefly reviewing some of the key landmarks of the approach, the case is represented in terms of factors and dimensions, and further explored using theory construction and argumentation schemes approaches.
