In an era where law firms and legal departments are constantly pursuing efficiency and comprehensive access to legal information, Docket Alarm proudly announces significant enhancements to its suite of features and analytics capabilities. These advancements are designed to refine legal research, case management, and legal business operations. Additionally, we are excited to share news about our latest integration with Foundation.

Strategic Integration with Foundation: A Leap Forward in Experience Management

Responding to the demand for seamless integration between Docket Alarm and Foundation, we have successfully implemented this capability, greatly improving experience management and business development. This integration facilitates the effortless exportation of data from Docket Alarm to Foundation, enabling law firms to analyze litigation histories, attorney experiences, and client representations with unprecedented ease. Such capabilities are instrumental in strategic planning, case preparation, associate development, and crafting compelling proposals.

Innovations Powered by OpenAI: Enhancing Decision-Making

Docket Alarm’s latest update introduces OpenAI-powered API endpoints, offering beta access to 'Ask a Docket' and 'Judgment Extractions'. These features let you extract structured information from dockets or documents, catering to specific user requirements. Significantly, customers can leverage 'Ask a Docket' to pinpoint particular causes of action, illustrating the practical benefits of this technology in enhancing legal workflows and research methodologies.

For example, if you want to extract the causes of action in all of your cases, you might ask the “Ask a Docket” endpoint “extract the causes of action” with the format being “in a bullet-pointed list emphasizing the relevant statutes, regulations, and case law”.

Motion Analytics: Unlocking Deeper Insights into State Courts

Our expansion of Motion Analytics now encompasses select state courts, providing access to a wealth of motion data tagged by type and outcome. This extended feature delivers detailed analytics across a vast array of motion types, giving legal professionals critical insights into court trends and enhancing legal strategy formulation.

Additionally, Docket Alarm's Motion Analytics offers insights such as the likelihood of success. Users can visualize trends to know the best path to success, helping attorneys tailor their strategies. Find motions and complaints like yours, drawing on winning precedents to craft more persuasive pleadings.

In addition to federal courts, Motion Analytics is now available in the following states:

  • Delaware (Court of Chancery)
  • California (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Alameda, Riverside and San Diego counties)
  • Florida
  • Wisconsin

Additional jurisdictions will be added to Motion Analytics in the coming months, with two major cities joining the platform in the next two weeks.


Docket Alarm’s integration of analytics into state court research represents a significant advancement in legal technology, empowering legal professionals with data-driven decision-making.
