(ALN) announced today that Blank Rome LLP has purchased its eDockets court-rules-based calendaring and docketing systems software as well as Docket Direct local/federal court feeds and Smart Dockets™ court date calculator app. Blank Rome also bought the eDockets/iManage Document Management System integration and national court rules as part of their subscription.
