It's unlikely that a smoking gun exists if a lawsuit makes it to trial. But bringing the evidence to life in a visually rich trial presentation can itself become your smoking gun. An effective trial presentation requires that both you and your trial presentation software perform without a hitch. You must rehearse to minimize unforced errors such as disfluencies that distract jurors. And your trial presentation software must perform like a well-tuned sports car — fast and stable.

LexisNexis Sanction 3.5 … in One Sentence

Launched last week, LexisNexis Sanction 3.5 is trial presentation software.

The Killer Feature

Recognizing that trial presentation software must move at the speed of litigators, LexisNexis focused on optimizing Sanction's performance. The company redesigned Sanction to load and display evidence instantly with just a few clicks.

"We've made some fundamental changes to the product design with Sanction 3.5 to significantly improve its speed and performance," LexisNexis Vice President Steve Ashbacher told us. "This unmatched speed and stability gives litigators the confidence to take full control of their presentations. Users can get up and running on Sanction in as little as 10 minutes, and can now load and display large exhibits such as PDF files instantly during their litigation presentations."

Other Notable Features

You'll also find a new user interface designed to make Sanction's controls more readily accessible. According to Ashbacher, the interface further increases speed, eliminating "awkward pauses" that can distract a jury.

Because deposition videos and demonstrative videos have become more common, the new version of Sanction features improved video support. You can manage, present, and export video files for use in a presentation and for sharing with other members of your team. Sanction also handles audio files.

Other features include annotation tools, text tear-outs and zooms, side-by-side comparisons, Bates stamps, image peel back, and the ability to pull up any piece of evidence on the fly.

What Else Should You Know?

Over the years, LexisNexis has created a portfolio of software for all phases of litigation that increasingly integrate with one another. In keeping with this philosophy, Sanction now integrates with LexisNexis CaseMap, the company's case analysis software. For example, you can move exhibits from CaseMap into Sanction for an improved litigation workflow. Learn more about Sanction 3.5.
