Today, ROSS Intelligence has announced that it will shut down its operations. In a statement published on its website, the San Francisco-based company noted that it has stopped accepting new customers on Dec. 7, and will stop offering its legal research platform as of Jan. 31, 2021. It will also help customers export their data and transition to other legal research tools starting in January.

In the statement, ROSS cited its inability to raise funding and sustain itself financially as it deals with a lawsuit from Thomson Reuters, which accuses ROSS of using a bot to siphon Westlaw’s copyrighted material, and then leveraging that data to train its artificial intelligence systems. ROSS noted that the lawsuit has been “heavy” for it to bear.
