What do Lexis and ALR have in common with "the singing cowboy" Gene Autry?

They're "back in the saddle again!"  Although the similarity pretty much ends there.  LexisNexis is a online commercial information and research services provider while Gene Autry was a much beloved, but now deceased, performing cowboy.

Nevertheless, Lexis has announced that after a year's absence, it will once again be offering American Law Reports ("ALR") among its searchable databases.   I don't know how Gene would feel, but LWR Profs, law students, lawyers and judges will undoubtedly be pleased.

Hat tip to the WisBlawg - from the University of Wisconsin Law Library.
