AristoCAT Selected for State of Washington vs U.S. Tobacco Companies, et. al.

You've read the news about the State of Washington suing the U.S. Tobacco companies. This precedent setting trial involved billions of dollars, and the attorneys needed immediate access to testimony and daily, certified copy. They turned to AristoCAT as the trial's CAT system.

Using computers equipped with the Windows 98 operating system (the standard at that time), seventeen attorneys located in the courtroom, as well as in war-rooms, viewed the testimony via a combination of AristoCAT's TotalView litigation support software, as well as LiveNote and CaseView. A scopist edited and printed the testimony as the reporter wrote it. Globals were passed back to the real-time program, so that the attorneys didn't see the occasional untranslate a second time.

At the end of the day, the transcript was proofread and the automatic indexing program was run to produce a fully indexed transcript of witnesses and exhibits, with page numbers. ASCII files were produced and condensed transcripts printed. The certified transcript, ASCII files and word index were handed to the attorneys by 6:00 p.m. the day of the trial.

This is a real-life example of AristoCAT's power and capabilities at work. When the best legal teams need the best software, they turn to us.
