Docket Alarm Makes 250 Million Documents Available for Legal Analytics and Insights

Milestone Expands Analytics Opportunities for U.S. Law Firms


Washington, DC (January 29, 2019) – Docket Alarm by Fastcase, a leader in litigation analytics and data-based judicial profiles, announced today it has reached a milestone of making more than 250 million legal documents available for litigators and subscribers gathering legal analytics and insights. These documents include briefs motions, complaints, and other docket items that litigators want at their fingertips.


Docket Alarm is a research database that lives alongside Fastcase, enhancing your research experience. Its matchless database allows users to search millions of lawsuits, track your cases on any device, and analyze outcomes for competitive advantage. Access to these legal documents, in conjunction with Docket Alarm’s revolutionary Analytics Workbench tool and the Fastcase legal research library, creates an unparalleled database for litigators, law firm “makers”, librarians, and litigation support professionals in the legal industry to build their own bespoke litigation analytics across any court, practice area, or litigation event.


The revolutionary Analytics Workbench tool allows users to generate litigation analytics across the entire 250 million record dataset that includes all case types in state courts, federal courts, administrative courts, and other jurisdictions in the Docket Alarm system. Users can capture and analyze legal events that remain hidden in traditional offerings such as revealing trends about discovery motions, motions in limine, and scheduling and pre-trial conferences, at both the state and federal level that would be impossible for traditional analytics.


“Whether it be through AI or natural language processing, having access to the tools to derive analytical insight from large sets of legal filings is now a staple for today’s law firms,” said Docket Alarm Founder and Managing Director Michael Sander. “We will continue to expand our coverage so our subscribers and law firm partners can obtain better litigation outcomes and serve their clients well.”


In the past year, Docket Alarm expanded its coverage to 16 state courts, including California, New York and Texas – and there’s more coming soon. In addition to coverage of administrative courts and the entire federal court system via PACER, Docket Alarm also incorporates analytics in the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”).


In conjunction with data analytics and docket updates from Docket Alarm, legal researchers can extend their capabilities in Fastcase with the opportunity to purchase access to exclusive integrated products, such as Full Court Press publications, and artificial intelligence tools within the AI Sandbox, plus access to licensed secondary materials through James Publishing and Wolters Kluwer/Aspen/CCH.
