About Cloud Court


Optimize testimony to optimize results.

Cloud Court is a LegalTech software company that delivers solutions to help litigation teams optimize testimony to improve outcomes. Founded by litigators and in-house counsel, Cloud Court, Inc. is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our hosted solutions enable litigators to reduce the cost of testimony, better leverage data, and extract ROI from historical knowledge by "moneyballing" testimony.


Our mission is to leverage technology to help litigation teams win cases. We help our clients win difficult cases they could lose, and "jump ball" cases that could go either way. We also help our clients win the cases they should win, only earlier and on better terms. Our primary focus is on testimony, with an emphasis on deposition testimony.  

We invented Testimony Intelligence.

testimony intelligence - n. – a set of strategies and tools that legal professionals use to analyze testimony data and transform it into meaningful insights and litigation advantages.

  • What: past depositions, trial and current depo transcripts, other hearings

  • When: typically follows/overlaps with eDiscovery, developed before depo designations

  • Where deployed: new attorney onboarding, drafting motions and briefs, collaboration with aligned parties, settlement/mediation, witness prep, trial/witness outlines

Ex: The clients' counsel leveraged their testimony intelligence to drive their adversary to a surprisingly speedy resolution with very favorable terms.

What's so special about depositions?

Depositions are the new trial.*

Documents and facts shape a case. But human testimony, interpreting and providing context to those documents and facts, makes or breaks a case. The party that can tell the most compelling story by leveraging their case's assets and minimizing their liabilities is going to win.


Why not focus on trials? 98% of civil cases are settled or dropped before trial. That means you're only going to get one shot at taking down your opponent's witnesses. And you only get one shot at defending your own.

For important cases, you need to prepare for your key depositions with the same care that you prepare for trial.

And you need to fully leverage deposition testimony now in order to win before trial.

I feel like we've just scratched the surface of what we can do using Testimony Intelligence.

We can't take the chance of missing potentially beneficial testimony, but we have finite time and resources to manually read and analyze hundreds of transcripts. Topic extraction is already a leap forward in accelerating this phase. It complements case synopses, and I can imagine using it to help us speed up depo designations.
