DENVER, CO — Feb. 27, 2001 – realLegal.com’s ( www.reallegal.com) e-transcript binder transcript management software was the featured technology for an innovative pilot project that nabbed the only award in its category in the Judicial Council of California’s annual coveted Kleps Awards. The award, won by the First District Court of Appeals in San Francisco, was based on the use of realLegal.com’s transcript management software, the company announced today. The realLegal e-transcript binder software enables court reporters to capture transcripts electronically across 12 counties and then make them available to court justices and staff for research and review. This innovative realLegal software also provides an electronic archival storage medium. “In launching this pilot, we realized that using technology could speed up some of our traditional court processes and make us more efficient in our handling and review of transcripts for cases on appeal,” said Ron Barrow, clerk of the First District Court of Appeal and project lead for “Electronic Reporter’s Transcripts on Appeal.” “With this system, our justices and staff can quickly search and review reporters’ transcripts electronically and costly paper storage is greatly reduced.” The focus of the First District Court of Appeal’s award-winning pilot project was on creating a searchable repository for transcripts on appeal for 12 county courts in the San Francisco area. As a project endorsed by the California Judicial Council’s Court Technology Committee and having already been in operation for a year, the court system had more than 775 cases in realLegal.com’s stored e-transcript binder software. By offering a Windows Explorer-like interface, e-transcript binder enabled justices and staff to review, search, annotate, and incorporate excerpts of transcripts into their appeal documents electronically. Additionally, realLegal.com’s e-transcript PTX Viewer (downloaded free from the realLegal.com Web site) allows court staff members to open PTX files in the e-transcript format and work on a case anywhere. Developed for use by attorneys and court reporters, realLegal.com’s transcript management software allows users to organize, digest, annotate, report and manage trial and deposition transcripts. e-transcript binder provides attorneys and courts with a ‘big picture’ approach by managing an unlimited number of transcripts in an easy-to-use environment. Users can import, search and review transcripts electronically, in addition to ‘going live’ with its new 32-bit upgrade that allows for real time feeds during a trial or deposition. About The Kleps Awards The Kleps Awards were created in 1991 in honor of Ralph N. Kleps, the first administrative director of the California courts.
