The category of judicial analytics has a few major players, with more coming into play. Lex Machina, the granddaddy of judicial analytics began with patent and trademark analytics and moved into federal, bankruptcy, appeals and states. Others such as Thomson Reuters Litigation Monitor followed. The focus for several years was on developing analytics for federal courts, with Courtlink being one exception. Lex Machina, Gavelytics and Docket Alarm began exploring state coverage. Acquisitions have played a role in shaping the judicial analytics landscape, in particular, Lexis’ acquisition of Lex Machina and FastCase’s acquisition of Docket Alarm. More recently, Westlaw Edge has come out with a comprehensive platform and substantial state court coverage and new player Trellis has made a significant impact into state court coverage.
