New national witness database offers searchable abstracts online.

THE NATIONAL Expert Transcript Service of Green Brook, N.J. has announced the creation of an Expert Witness Library to make it easier for lawyers to access the full-text transcripts of expert witness' prior testimony.

Through an agreement with WESTLAW, the Eagan, Minn.-based legal research service for attorneys and NETS operating partner, and the United States Court Reporters Association, federal court reporters will now make expert witness testimony available to the entire legal community. NETS users will be able to preview abstracts of expert testimony on WESTLAW and then order full-text transcripts from NETS.

The company points out that with the exception of a few high-profile cases, expert testimony has not been available online. With over half of all felony cases and 90 percent of all civil cases involving expert testimony of some kind, the company says that lawyers will now be able to track down experts' prior testimony more easily to prepare for trial or deposition.

THE NEED for bulky equipment to project computer images, video and other data in the courtroom has been eliminated with the introduction from Telex Communications Inc. of the Firefly P200 LCD Notebook Projector, whose folding design, the company says, makes it the smallest in the industry. Designed with lawyers in mind, the Firefly P200 collapses to a folded size of only 2.9-inches high, weighing less than 10 pounds. With these dimensions, the projector fits into most briefcases, giving legal professionals a new level of portability for presentation equipment, according to the Minneapolis-based Telex.
