Professor Gregory Klass's replication study of the Draft Restatement of the Law of Consumer Contract's empirical analysis of privacy policies found troubling and pervasive problems with the Reporters' coding of cases. We extended Professor Klass's study with a replication of the coding of the two largest datasets supporting the Draft Restatement, those on the enforceability of unilateral contract modifications and those on the enforceability of clickwrap assent. For the replication, we reviewed 186 cases blind to the Reporters' coding.
