Searching for Documents in Litigation
Nextpoint is excited to announce two new transcript reports available to Nextpoint Litigation users!
The first is a highlighted search hit report when searching across deponents or proceedings. The second is a CSV (index) report of selected clips, notes, and field data when working within an individual transcript.
*These reports are available to both Standard and Advanced user levels.
Transcript Search Hit Report
The Transcript Search Hit Report enables users to run keyword searches across deponent or proceeding transcripts and export the highlighted search hits in a PDF transcript format.
When a search term hits on a transcript page, the resulting report will highlight the term on the transcript page (underlined and in red) and include all other transcript text from that particular page.
- Partner Pam is cross examining an expert witness live in court this week. She’d like to review his previous transcripts to identify questions similar to ones she needs to ask and gather his responses for possible impeachment.
- "I want to see everything X expert has said about the company ABC in her trial and deposition testimony that we have.”
How to create a Transcript Search Hit Report
