Major Milestone Indicative of Market's Acceptance and Growing Adoption of Electronic Filing by Courts and Litigators
DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 22, 2006--LexisNexis U.S., a leading provider of information and services solutions, announced today that a significant milestone was reached this month by its electronic filing division. LexisNexis® File & Serve surpassed one million cases in its electronic filing and service system.

By surpassing one million cases online, LexisNexis File & Serve demonstrates the continued acceptance and growing adoption of electronic filing in the market by the courts and, in turn, litigators.
"This is a very important milestone for the courts as well as litigators because it is one more indication that e-filing and e-service are becoming mainstream with the courts and the legal industry," said Michele Vivona, vice president and general manager, LexisNexis Litigation Services. "With support for a wide range of case types - from large multi-party complex litigation like asbestos, to smaller two-party cases like domestic relations - LexisNexis File & Serve is clearly a leader in the e-filing field."
LexisNexis File & Serve gives courts and law firms greater control over case file management. With a robust and secure infrastructure, LexisNexis File & Serve provides improved access to case documents and streamlines the intake process. Online clerk review and judicial action improve court operations, while the online document repository enhances care, custody and control. Law firms benefit from improved document access, automated case monitoring, and the elimination of the physical delivery of paper.
"Over 67,000 judges, clerks, attorneys and other legal professionals nationwide have been registered to use LexisNexis File & Serve," said Robin Castro, vice president, LexisNexis File & Serve. "They file and or serve about 17 million documents each year through LexisNexis File & Serve, and we believe that no other provider comes close in the number of subscribers and transaction volume.
"We expect continued, steady growth in the number of electronically-filed cases as well as the addition of more district and appellate courts around the country and internationally," added Castro.
