THERE WAS a lot of buzz at Chicago's ABA TECHSHOW 2000 about a
home-grown product from I-DEP L.L.C. Currently in beta testing, I-DEP 1.0, was previewed at the show, and is expected to
launch later this spring. It will offer live video and two-way
audio; court reporter transcripts; and private messaging to any
desktop or laptop PC, using a secure Internet connection, says
the company. The service includes Depositions on DemandSM, which
automatically archives each deposition for real-time review.
Founded by Internet marketer Jay Jackson and Julie Furer, an attorney
with Chicago's Schiff Hardin and Waite, I-DEP L.L.C. is in first-stage funding and is privately funded.
