POWERFUL, ROBUST MODULES
DOCKET DIRECT LOCAL FEDERAL COURT FEEDS
Automatically adds docket entries and calendars court appearances directly from the court’s docket to ensure your firm always meets its deadlines. Judges and parties are automatically included in the case to allow for easy reporting and summarizing all the cases before a particular judge and a service list, saving your firm time.
Docket Direct currently accesses court data from the New York and Chicago areas local and federal courts, with more state and federal courts to come.
Because of the multi-platform design of eDockets, it can be configured for firms that only need this court data feed.
NYS Supreme including New York, Kings, Bronx, Richmond, Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Westchester, Putnam, Orange, Rockland, Dutchess, and Erie; New York Southern District (NYSD), New York Northern District (NYND), New York Eastern District (NYED), and New York Western District (NYWD).
Cook County Circuit Courts, Will County Circuit Court, Kane County Circuit Court, DuPage County Circuit Court, McHenry County Circuit Court, Illinois Northern District, and Illinois Northern Bankruptcy.
Docket Direct ensures that all court appearances are docketed and attorneys are notified of the most up to date time and place and judge information for the appearance.
An electronic case file (ECF) verification service for attorneys, law firms and their clients is based on a subscribed schedule that will scan for any changes in the court dockets that did not generate email notifications from PACER.gov, and will send an alert to the subscribing attorney.
By monitoring and delivering undelivered e-mails from PACER.gov, ECF Verify protects firms from the risk of missed court dates and critical information including scheduling times for arguments or change in courtrooms.
Missed filing deadlines and appearances as result of missing ECF notifications can have significant consequences on the outcome of a case and can expose the firm to (costly) malpractice claims. With the burden on the attorneys to monitor dockets, courts hold them accountable for missed deadlines.
Why Does it Happen?
All notifications on cases managed on PACER.gov are sent via e-mail. As such, each attorney on the case must have an up to date email address registered with PACER.gov and be subscribed to the corresponding case. Even still emails get lost between the sending party and receiving party, resulting in a missed notification.
Common reasons for the lost email notices between the ECF system and the recipient’s e-mail include failed mail services, filters directing mail to spam, security filters recognizing incoming mail containing an electronic virus, and many more.
Reduce risk with ECF Verify, an insurance service that will monitor and deliver undelivered e-mails from PACER.gov.
