Docket Alarm Announces Calendaring Feature

New Calendaring Feature to Debut During 2019 National Docketing Association’s 7th Annual Conference


Washington, DC (September 19, 2019) – Docket Alarm by Fastcase, the leader in customizable litigation analytics and docket research, today released an innovative new calendaring feature in that binds the work of docketing professionals more closely to attorneys. This feature will be showcased during the National Docketing Association’s 7th Annual Conference this September 22-24 in Denver, CO.


“Missing a court deadline is the number one way law firms end up in malpractice suits,” said Docket Alarm Founder and Managing Director Michael Sander. “Now, docket professionals will be able to access court rules directly on the complete docket, reducing errors and increasing visibility of upcoming deadlines across the litigation team.”


The calendaring feature combines the most state-of-the-art docket research platform with a robust set of court rules to calculate any deadline. Subscribers of Docket Alarm now have these new features available immediately:


Track cases with lightning fast updates, whether or not your firm has made a notice of appearance;


Search through the full text of entire case records to find documents in your own or related cases;


Research court rules and scheduling orders, and how individual judges have applied them in the past, quickly find sample documents;


Calendar deadlines quickly, by simply selecting a docket entry, and synching it with all attorneys on the case.


Docket Alarm helps docketing professionals get their job done quickly. Both docketing and the calendaring feature are combined on one platform, thereby increasing the ease of use, reducing the amount of money and time spent on training, and eliminating any decentralized system of docketing and calendaring.


The calendaring feature is powered by CalendarRules and by docket data pulled from more than 300 million records in Docket Alarm’s database.


“Fastcase’s strategy has been to build a preeminent group of legal tech partners. We’re really excited to be partnering with CalendarRules for Docket Alarm’s new calendaring feature,” said Steve Errick, Fastcase’s Chief Operating Officer. “Working with CalendarRules has been a pleasure and we’ve been able to seamlessly integrate their impressive data with our own.”
