Saturday, July 1, 2006 - 01:00

Furthering its commitment to providing exclusive sources aimed at customer success, LexisNexis U.S. has announced the June launch of Legal Industry Monitor , a daily electronic newsletter that will deliver a variety of news and information focused on the law firm and legal industry.It will include headlines from a variety of sources including Mealey's legal news, the World Wide Web coverage of the top legal firms, and from several other key publications.

There is a growing concern by governments, the judicial community and the general public about the exposure of sensitive information in documents associated with litigation. The LexisNexis File & Serve electronic filing and service system has addressed this concern with the introduction of integrated redaction capabilities.

The File & Serve system has always allowed redacted documents to be up-loaded, with the sensitive information 'blacked out.' With the new integrated capabilities, File & Serve now gives courts the ability to redact information in documents that have been filed electronically, including scanned documents. The original un-redacted version remains available only to case participants and the court, and the redacted version is available to the general public.

LexisNexis Group has announced that Michael Walsh has been named president and CEO of LexisNexis U.S. Legal Markets. Most recently, Mr. Walsh led the LexisNexis division responsible for serving the country's large law firms with a comprehensive portfolio of client development, research, practice management and litigation products and solutions.
