Realtime Complaints Features

Extremely Quick Alerts - CourtAlert monitors every covered court, PACER and NY Supreme courts very frequently in order to provide near realtime alerts. 

In a recent customer poll, our customers complimented the speed of CourtAlert's realtime alerts in comparison to some of our other competitors.  

"The CourtAlert response was faster by 1 hour and 15 minutes".

 We are committed to bringing you the fastest alerts.

Early Alerts 

 The Realtime Federal Complaint service can optionally send alerts as soon as the PACER case is created, even before a Complaint is uploaded. To use this, enable the "Alert me as soon as the case is created" feature.  Using this feature means your firm could be alerted on a new case while the filer is yet to upload the complaint. The service will also email you the complaint as soon as it becomes available. 

 The Realtime Federal Complaint service will notify you even before the court assigns the case and Index Number.
