Judicata, a San Francisco, CA-based legal research company, raised $5.8m in funding.
The round was led by Khosla Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Keith Rabois, a partner at Khosla Ventures and former executive at PayPal, LinkedIn, and Square, will join the company’s board (read his post about the funding here).
Judicata is developing a search technology that aims to turn unstructured court opinions into structured data. It will allow lawyers to analyze data and find how the law has been applied and how legal arguments will fare in the future.
The company will release the product in 2014 starting from California.
