CourtAlert provides Pre-RJI (“county clerk”) watch service in New York and Westchester counties and with this new alert

including all boroughs of New York City, Nassau and Suffolk. Therefore if you have an
electronically filed case in any of these counties, you may want to put the
case on watch even before an RJI has been filled, please use the Quick
Entry to add such cases to the watch list.
The Office of Courts
Administration will be providing the information to us at the very early
morning hours, for the prior day. CourtAlert 52 will automatically be
produced immediately thereafter.
We are Committed to Remain the
