Docket Alarm Provides Half A Billion Documents for Legal Analytics and Insights

Record-breaking Expansion to 500,000,000 Legal Documents in Database Offers Law Firms Competitive Advantage Opportunities


Washington, DC (August 4, 2021) – Docket Alarm by Fastcase, a leader in litigation analytics and data-based judicial profiles, announced today it has reached a milestone of making half a billion 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.


“Content is king,’” said Docket Alarm Founder and Managing Director Michael Sander. “This vast store of 500 million litigation records is making Docket Alarm a favorite tool among demanding litigators, because Docket Alarm has content that is simply unavailable on other platforms.”


Law firms and legal researchers that use Docket Alarm’s matchless database can 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.


Over the last 30 months, Docket Alarm doubled the number of documents it makes available to subscribers and continues to grow with strong momentum. Docket Alarm’s expansive coverage includes state courts across 33 states, administrative courts and the entire federal court system via PACER. Users with flat rate accounts are not charged fees to view or download documents from PACER if those documents are already in the Docket Alarm database. Docket Alarm also incorporates analytics in the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”). The latest additions and enhancements of features include “Deadline Display” in its Litigation Hub, Federal Appellate Analytics, coverage of every U.S. patent application and prosecution history from the Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) system and all of the underlying documents, a calendaring feature powered by CalendarRules, Clio integrations, and extending analytics platforms through Judicata.


The revolutionary Analytics Workbench tool allows users to generate litigation analytics across the entire 500 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.


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.
