In a major expansion, Law.com Radar has added new suit updates from key courts across nine new states, providing visibility into significant litigation arenas that are often challenging to monitor.
The March release includes more than 100 courts in New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maryland and Texas. Additional state courts will be introduced at a fast pace over the coming weeks and months.
Why it matters: State courts are fragmented, making it complicated for litigators and law firm professionals to discover new cases as soon as they are docketed. Radar’s state court expansion employs a team of on-the-ground researchers in order to cover those hard-to-reach venues.
The expansion ”provides lawyers with exclusive practice intelligence from hard-to-find sources within the disparate state court systems, while at the same time allowing ALM to provide our readers with more articles on trending litigation topics,” said Brian Harris, director of ALM’s State Courts Editorial Program.
The new courts build on Law.com Radar’s existing coverage of federal district courts and Delaware’s Court of Chancery as well as its corporate deal updates and algorithmic Trend Detection capabilities.
Every new suit update from Law.com Radar includes vital information including parties, counsel and case type. Law.com Radar also provides concise summaries of new commercial cases in real time by employing generative technology and editorial review.
Along with the new courts, Law.com Radar now offers daily case report emails by jurisdiction and new suit alerts that can be configured around courts, practice areas, topics, industry segments, law firms, parties or free text searches.
“The new state court content coming into Radar provides readers with a valuable litigation surveillance tool that can help them advise their clients, keep them—and also keep an eye on the competition,” said Hank Grezlak, Editor-in-Chief, Regional Brands and Legal Themes. ”It also provides us with a springboard to provide deeper news coverage of the most important cases and emerging litigation happening across the U.S.”
Law.com Radar is now integrated with My Law.com, bringing together client surveillance with news and analysis based on topics, regions and companies selected by users.
