Fastcase Providing COVID-19 Legal Developments via Email

Subscribers Get Daily Alerts on Cases, Breaking News and Legal Analysis


Washington, DC (November 12, 2020) – Fastcase today announced the launch of COVID-19 Case Alerts, an email alert service to keep subscribers aware of new civil opinions, selected pleadings, breaking news, and analyses of legal issues related to the coronavirus pandemic.


“This is a dangerous and fast-changing pandemic, and it’s more important than ever for firms to be ahead of the curve when advising clients. There is no excuse for missing key developments, especially now,” said Ed Walters, Fastcase CEO. “Our team will be curating these COVID-19 Case Alerts and providing them for free to attorneys using Fastcase through their bar association.”


Each business day, excluding holidays, Fastcase will deliver a snapshot of the day’s legal developments on COVID-19. This includes decided cases from Fastcase, new complaints and pleadings from Docket Alarm, new blog posts from the LexBlog network, and legal news from Law Street Media, consolidated into a single, daily alert.


Alerts are organized by topic, including Business Law, Consumer Rights, Labor and Employment, Insurance, Legislative Relief, Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death. Each case includes a brief excerpt and a public link to the opinion in the Fastcase library that users can easily view and share with others with one click. Alerts are public, so recipients do not need a Fastcase subscription to view, making them a great client development resource.


This new resource is provided as a free benefit to all members of Fastcase bar association partners. Everyone that accesses Fastcase through their bar association can subscribe to the COVID-19 Case Alerts by logging in to Fastcase and clicking on Apps & Tools then clicking the link to the free subscription sign-up page.


Subscriptions are also available for individual purchase at $29/month, or $295/year. Click here to subscribe monthly, or here for an annual subscription. To discuss enterprise pricing, contact sales@fastcase.com or 202-999-4777.


Terry Hill, Division Director at The Florida Bar and President of the National Association of Bar Executives, expressed, “The Florida Bar is proud of our 20 year relationship with Fastcase and all they do for our members, but especially the way they step up and go out of their way to provide expanded resources during times of crisis.” Hill said, “I look forward to sharing the news and promoting the Fastcase COVID-19 Case Alerts to Florida Bar members and attorneys across the country.”
