Deadlines On Demand (DOD), a legal deadline calculation service, and LexisNexis U.S., a provider of legal, news, and business information services, have announced an alliance to bring rules-based court deadlines to the lexisONE community on November 1. LexisNexis U.S. has also announced that it has been selected to create and maintain an information system for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

Deadlines On Demand, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of CompuLaw, LLC. The alliance between DOD and LexisNexis is intended to provide lexisONE users with easy and early access to a critical litigation tool. The DOD Web site allows users to obtain court rules-based deadlines. The technology behind DOD includes CompuLaw's software and library of rules databases for jurisdictions nationwide.

LexisNexis U.S. has also announced that it has been selected to create and maintain an information system for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Under the contract terms, LexisNexis will create and maintain a Web-enabled, Web-accessible, searchable database for the storage and retrieval of CFTC's historic legislative documents. This continues a relationship that began in 1979, during the course of which RTIS has provided similar services to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Under the recently renewed Patent Data Capture contract, RTIS will continue to capture, manage, and prepare for publication patent applications submitted to the USPTO over the next seven years.
