Here is an email I recently received from Sean Broderick regarding a free upgrade to CaseMap 10.
Dear CJA Panel Representatives and Panel Administrators,
For CJA panel attorneys who purchased their CaseMap licenses through the Office of Defender Services’s national maintenance contract, you are eligible to upgrade to CaseMap 10 free of charge. Released earlier this year, CaseMap 10 has a number of features including optical character recognition, new bulk importation capabilities, increased integration with Microsoft products and customized spreadsheets which FDO and CJA panel attorneys have found to be useful to their cases.
In addition, due to the popularity and interest of the FDO and CJA community, LexisNexis has agreed to offer the CaseMap / TimeMap / DocManager* and TextMap products at a special reduced price through November 15, 2012. LexisNexis is offering CJA panel attorneys the following additional price reductions:
| GSA List |FDO/CJA price |FDO/CJA price
Product | Price | until | after
| | 11/15/12 | 11/15/12
| | $ 387.50 | $ 437.50
CaseMap / TimeMap / DocManager Bundle| $ 875.00 | |
| | $ 484.50 | $ 548.50
CaseMap Suite (CaseMap, TimeMap, | $ 986.00 | |
TextMap, DocManager) | | |

CaseMap is a fact management database application used to manage, organize and connect case facts, legal issues, key players, and documents. Reports can be easily produced which give snapshots of critical case detail including an outline of issues for the case, a fact chronology, and supporting people, organizations, and documents in the case. In addition, the reports produced can now also include various linked documents embedded into the PDF to allow easy sharing of key information with people who may not have access to the database.
*DocManager, LexisNexis’ new third-party plug-in, allows users to full-text search the entire CaseMap case file as well as search any linked documents. Users can view highlighted search hits in DocManager’s near-native viewer, and bulk import and view many file formats (not just PDF files as was the case with DocPreviewer) while still providing Adobe Acrobat integration and functionality that users are accustomed to with DocPreviewer. (NOTE: For people who decide against purchasing DocManager, they can continue to use DocPreviewer in its place though they will not have the near-native viewer and additional functionality that DocManager provides.)
TimeMap is an easy to use timeline graphing software that enables the user to create a timeline of events from critical case details.
TextMap is a transcript summary tool that can be integrated with CaseMap. TextMap offers the ability to link transcripts from case depositions, examinations, and other proceedings to case exhibits and other documents. It can also be used to play video and audio that has been synched with transcript text.
After November 15, LexisNexis will still offer reduced pricing to FDOs and CJA panel attorneys as described in the above table.
Besides the significantly reduced price for all Federal Defender Offices and Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel attorneys, FDOs and CJA panel attorneys do not have to pay annual maintenance or subscription fees in order to receive technical support and to obtain upgrades of the CaseMap software for as long as we can continue the national maintenance agreement with LexisNexis.
For CJA panel inquiries: contact Courtney Kessler with LexisNexis at 904-373-2161 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance and questions.
If you have any questions regarding the utilization of CaseMap within FDOs and CJA panel attorneys’ offices or whether your licenses are listed as part of the national maintenance contract, please contact either Alex Roberts or Kelly Scribner of the National Litigation Support Team at 510-637-3500, or by email: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
