Procedural Moves in Lexis-Nexis Georgia Suit

Courthouse News – “Attorneys taking on publishing conglomerate Reed Elsevier have dismissed one claim for fraud from their class action against the British publishing giant. At the same time, the lawyer leading the plaintiff’s side of the case said Reed Elsevier has refused to comply with discovery requests, a tune he expects will change when the Dekalb County judge presiding over the case issues a discovery order that is expected shortly. The class action allegest that Lexis-Nexis Courtlink, owned by Reed Elsevier, and Georgia’s Fulton County are running a mandatory e-filing system that violates the Georgia Constitution, primarily because it hands off a key public responsibility to a foreign, private publisher willing to charge large amounts for acting as the electronic gateway to the courthouse.”
