American LegalNet Adds NY Docket Direct™ Feature to eDockets™
New functionality integrates New York court alerts and automated diary entries direct from the New York Unified Court System into eDockets™
Los Angeles – January 26, 2012 - American LegalNet (ALN), the premier provider of “Desktop to Courthouse” workflow technologies that reduce risk and minimize cost, today announced the addition of the Docket Direct™ feature to eDockets™. Docket Direct integrates New York court alerts and automated diary entries direct from the New York Unified Court System into ALN’s national rules-based docketing and calendaring solution, eDockets, on a dynamic basis.
eDockets’ Microsoft® Outlook integration populates all timekeepers’ Outlook Calendars with relevant Cook County court docket information as it is released from the clerk’s office. The integration of the New York Civil Supreme Court data is the same information available to clerks in courthouse*, which allows firms to track cases in real time. With Docket Direct attorneys can monitor a case’s motion schedules or trial assignment and receive alerts when motions or other appearances are scheduled and/or adjourned.
Docket Direct allows users to import the entire case history into eDockets or to select only specific case information including judges, plaintiffs, defendants, and counsel. Likewise, users can limit imports to future events only, such as future court appearances. A web-based link provides access to the court case history, which the attorney may access directly from Outlook. Events imported via Docket Direct can be reviewed through ad-hoc or scheduled docket reports.
The addition of Docket Direct continues to distinguish eDockets as more than a rules-based docketing and calendar application. In addition to Docket Direct, eDockets integrates CM/ECF receipt processing through the Auto Docket® feature and also integrates with official, government and agency forms through ALN’s Forms WorkFlow product. ALN’s eDockets is the first product suite to integrate New York Civil Supreme Court data as well as Cook County (IL) data, Northern District of Illinois’ federal judge’s Daily Calls, PACER notices, and official forms into a single easy-to-use platform serving a firm’s national needs.
"We are excited to announce the enhanced functionality of eDockets for our current customer base and New York law firms,” stated Erez Bustan, president and CEO of American LegalNet. “The functionality in NY Docket Direct shows our continued investment to deliver the most comprehensive workflow in the docketing industry. We are proud to be able to provide an unmatched docketing solution to law firms that practice in New York. Finally, there’s a viable alternative to CompuLaw, MA3000 and Court Alert that offers court rules for jurisdictions that need them plus a seamless integration with Court Data, something that is unmatched in the industry.”
American LegalNet will be showcasing Docket Direct in New York City, January 30 - February 1, 2012. eDocket and Docket Direct demos are available at the Sheraton, New York, Madison 1 Conference Suite. To schedule a meeting, contact stiber@AmericanLegalNet.com or RSVP@AmericanLegalNet.com.
