LexisNexis to Acquire CourtLink

LexisNexis (http://www.lexisnexis.com) and CourtLink Corp. (http://www.courtlink.com), a leading provider of Web-based services for electronically filing legal documents and accessing and monitoring court records, have jointly announced that they have finalized the terms of a definitive agreement in which LexisNexis will acquire CourtLink. CourtLink will continue to operate from its Bellevue, Washington, headquarters after the acquisition and will be a separate business unit of LexisNexis.

Henry Givray, chairman, president, and CEO of CourtLink, will remain as a key member of the transition team through March 2002. Ann Fullenkamp, senior vice president of emerging markets at LexisNexis, will become chief operating officer of CourtLink after the acquisition is finalized. She said, "The synergies between LexisNexis and CourtLink are strong and will benefit the customers of both companies as well as the legal and business communities."

According to the announcement, CourtLink is the first company to create a single online platform for both electronically accessing records and filing documents with the courts. In Colorado, CourtLink has also developed and operates the first and only statewide e-filing system. CourtLink electronic access services allow users to search and retrieve case information from more than 200 million court records in 1,400 federal, state, and local court systems through a single online source. Users include law firms, banks, insurance and title companies, screening and investigation agencies, and the media.
