FactBox: Read Our Exclusive Report

By Neil J. Squillante | Thursday, March 12, 2015

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers a cloud case analysis application (see article below), a Windows taskbar utility, cloud project and task management software, and an Outlook add-on for searching your email. Don't miss the next issue.

CASE ANALYSIS MEETS THE CLOUD

Pity the Sisyphean litigators of yesteryear who used word processing software to painstakingly create and maintain digests connecting facts and issues. And pity the clients who overpaid for this manual labor. Wait. Yesteryear? Many litigators still don't use case analysis software, which uses a database to crunch facts and issues. Perhaps the cloud and its user experience advantages can turn the tide.

FactBox … in One Sentence

Launched recently, Lynx Workflow's FactBox is a cloud application for case analysis.

The Killer Feature

Once you enter facts and connect them to issues and subissues, you can slice and dice the data in various reports.

For example, you can generate an old school chronology listing all the facts by date. This report can take the form of a memorandum or table. Similarly, you can create a digest listing all the facts associated with a given issue.

You can customize reports, choosing whether to include items such as Key Date, Title, Content, Sources, and Contributor (your colleagues). When finalized, you can export reports in Word format.

In addition to assigning one or more issues to a fact, you can also assign customizable tags. You could create a tag for a deponent after which you can generate a report for this tag with all the facts and issues to cover in the deposition.

Other Notable Features

You start using FactBox by creating a case. Facts can consist of your notes, deposition testimony, discovery documents, photographs, etc. You enter notes and testimony using FactBox's rich text editor. The text editor has tools for character formatting, highlighting, and paragraph indenting.

You link source documents to facts. FactBox handles all popular document formats such as Word and PDF. As you enter facts and documents, you apply issues and tags as well as a Key Date if applicable.

Other features include the ability to view data by any parameter, second-level sorting (e.g., sort by issue and then by date), unlimited cases, and multiple accounts (for contract lawyers).

FactBox is hosted on redundant servers in physically secure datacenters in the United States. The company routinely hires audit firms to evaluate its security with penetration tests.

What Else Should You Know?

FactBox runs in all major desktop and mobile web browsers. You can also use it via the desktop Mac and Windows apps. FactBox costs $49 per month for one user and 1 TB of data, $179 per month for up to 5 users and 3 TB of data, $329 per month for up to 15 users and 5 TB of data, and $499 per month for unlimited users and unlimited data. The company discounts annual plans. You can try FactBox for free. Learn more about FactBox.

How I Won a Low-Budget Trial With Help From Five Apps and an iPad Plus a Judge's Brief Writing Tips

By Kathryn Hughes | Monday, February 23, 2015

Coming today to LitigationWorld: Litigator Stephen Hayes had a problem — a client with no money and an opposing party with no assets whose legal fees were paid by his parents. In this issue of LitigationWorld, Stephen explains how he used five low cost apps and an old iPad to connect the dots in thousands of pages of documents, and prepare a focused presentation at trial during which he successfully undermined the opposing party's expert witness.
