Show Me the Money: Quickly Find Court Damages Awards, Verdicts, Judgments, and Fines by Dollar Amount

Docket Alarm is excited to announce a new search feature that makes researching damages awards and jury verdicts fast and easy.

Researching dollar amounts in litigation is a common task, as parties often seek to understand their potential financial exposure or recovery by analyzing cases similar to their own. Previously, researching jury verdicts, damages, or other types of amounts in controversy was arduous. Researchers needed to either go through each case one-by-one or search for language that was often used in close proximity, such as the terms “damages” or “award.” Unfortunately, manually reviewing each document is extremely time consuming, and using too many shortcuts may result in overlooking relevant documents.

Docket Alarm has solved this problem.

For example, you can use a numerical range filter to find large class action lawsuits using the party number filter.
