Using Electronic Research for “Operation Last Chance”

Wednesday’s Jerusalem Post has an interesting story about a Harvard law student working at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, using our tools to track down war criminals.

As the student says he never suspected his addition of legal research databases to the 60-year hunt would enable him to find four suspects within a month.

He used simple database programs such as LexisNexis, Westlaw and New Detective that lawyers have at their disposal, and searched voting records, land transfer documents, professional licenses, property sales and death records.
