Lawsuit against Westlaw and Lexis takes a hit.

In February Mr. Torvik posted about a lawsuit alleging that Westlaw and Lexis violate copyright laws by publishing briefs without permission.  The Wall Street Journal Law Blog has a post discussing how the judge hearing the case has dismissed a large part of the case.  Lawyers who did not register their briefs with the copyright office--that is, virtually every lawyer on the planet--cannot be part of the lawsuit.
