New Event Alerts and Defense Counsel Alerts!

New Event Alerts:

CourtLink is pleased to announce the launch of New Event Alerts, a one of a kind feature that will allow you to be notified when a document is filed or an activity occurs that matches your criteria across the U.S. District courts.  This feature provides an unprecedented degree of insight into events within litigation. Traditional alerts are triggered by new cases.  New Event Alerts are triggered by new events, regardless of when the case was filed.

You can create diverse types of New Event Alert notifications, from a range of criteria. For instance, you could choose to be notified of new:

  • Daubert motions in patent cases
  • Motions for summary judgment in insurance cases filed in the New York Southern District Court
  • Answers to counterclaims in employment cases filed by a particular attorney
  • Appeals of any cases involving a prospective client or a specific nature of suit
  • Answers, Appeals, Briefs, Class actions, Complaints, Depositions, Discovery, Expert Witnesses, Judgments, Jury Instructions, Motions, Orders and Responses

Defense Counsel Alerts for the U.S. District Courts

Until now traditional new case alerts notified users when an attorney or firm appeared in a newly filed case, typically as the plaintiff counsel.   Now you will have the option to be notified when attorneys or firms appear as the defense counsel.  Throughout the day, CourtLink retrieves attorney appearance information in active U.S. District Court cases and checks the data against the user's criteria.  Results appear with other Attorney/Firm Alerts, designated as Defense Counsel.

How do I set up a New Event Alert?

It's EASY - go to, Click "Alert," "Set New Alert," and Select "NEW EVENT" then simply fill in the blank and we'll do the rest.


If alerts are included in your Courtlink subscription, there are no additional charges.  If you do not have a Courtlink subscription, transactional access is $2.95 for each New Event Alert result and $10.25 for each Defense Counsel Alert result.
