Oklahoma State Courts Network (OSCN) at www.oscn.net
has a legal research database containing over
2 million Oklahoma legal documents, including
case Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals, and the
United States Supreme Court, court dockets, Oklahoma
Statutes, Attorney General's opinions, and historical
documents. Hundreds of thousands of court dockets
are available nowhere else except the courthouses
... and on OSCN.
When OSCN recently decided to upgrade their Web-based
search engine, they chose to install the dtSearch
Text Retrieval Engine for full-text searching
of their immense database. According to Kevin
King, MIS Director at the Supreme Court of Oklahoma
Administrative Office of the Courts, "dtSearch
is the best performance product by a long way.
Searching is pretty much instantaneous."

Mr. King and his team used ActiveX to integrate
the dtSearch Engine with their SQL Server 2000
legal database, replacing the integrated text
engine. "dtSearch was the easiest to integrate....
Working with dtSearch was wonderful!"
As a result of Mr. King and his team's efforts:
"The New OSCN, with greatly improved search capabilities,
easier access to information, and larger and more
complete databases is now on line," announced
the OSCN Web site. "OSCN's new search engine is
one of the most powerful in existence .... Learn
to use it... it is one of the most important tools
available to help you in your legal practice."
"Mr. King and his staff deserve kudos. They have
built a superb resource for their users that provides
fast, convenient access to an enormous amount
of information," said David Thede, President,
dtSearch Corp. "We are very proud to be a part
of the solution they have created."
OSCN has been provided by the Oklahoma Supreme
Court free of charge since 1998 as a service to
the public, bench, and bar of Oklahoma. Oklahoma
was the first state to move to the internet and
provide a true legal research source, and OSCN
is still the most complete service of its kind
in the nation.
