Subject: 30-day Public Review for Electronic Court Filing Version 4.01

To OASIS Members, Public Announce Lists:

The OASIS LegalXML Electronic Court Filing TC members have
recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD)
and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

Committee Specification Draft 01 /
Public Review Draft 01
08 February 2011

Overview: This document defines the LegalXML Electronic Court
Filing 4.01 (ECF 4.0) specification, which consists of a set
of non-proprietary XML and Web services specifications,
along with clarifying explanations and amendments to those
specifications, that have been added for the purpose of
promoting interoperability among electronic court filing
vendors and systems. ECF Version 4.01 is a maintenance
release to address several minor schema and definition issues
identified by implementers of the ECF 4.0 specification.

This OASIS Technical Committee was chartered to will develop
specifications for the use of XML to create legal documents
and to transmit legal documents from an attorney, party or
self-represented litigant to a court, from a court to an
attorney, party or self-represented litigant or to another
court, and from an attorney or other user to another attorney
or other user of legal documents.

Public Review Period: The public review starts today,
26 February 2011 and ends 28 March 2011.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits
feedback from potential users, developers and others,
whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving
the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
