Now, Judge Thomas Is An Open Book Er, Data Base


Bits & Bytes

NOW, JUDGE THOMAS IS AN OPEN BOOK--ER, DATA BASE

By now, everyone must be aware of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas' background, schooling, and upbringing. But some information about him, including his views on affirmative action and civil rights, remains somewhat mysterious. As a result, there has been a frenzy of interest about the 43-year-old judge, prompting Mead Data Central Inc. in Dayton, Ohio, to create a special Thomas file on its Lexis and Nexis electronic information services.

The file, called NOMINE, contains a wide range of information on Judge Thomas. For $21 per search, plus Mead's standard connect charges, those with a personal computer can obtain copies of cases presided over by Thomas as chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and during his 15 months as a judge. There's also biographical information and a full history of news reports about him. The idea to set up files on a specific topic came to Mead Data during the gulf war, when journalists clamored for more information.EDITED BY SUNITA WADEKAR BHARGAVA
