Jean O’Grady writes

This week Lex Machina   reached a significant state court analytics milestone with the addition of the 100th state court. Lex Machina .launched as a patent litigation analytics project out of Stanford. in 2008 . Since acquisition by LexisNexis, it was expanded to cover business litigation in all federal trial courts.

Valuable New Tranche of Corporate Litigation. The reached the 100 state court mark recently with the addition of litigation analytics for Suffolk County Supreme Court and Westchester County Supreme Court (the “New York Courts”) and Oklahoma County District Court (the “Oklahoma Court”).  They previously launched the five counties within the boundaries of New York City (New York, Kings, Queens, Richmond and the Bronx) in 2020. As a former New Yorker I am astonished that it took four years to reach these two suburban boroughs.  These counties are home to some major corporate players. Westchester is home to companies much as Mastercard, Pepsi, IBM and Regeneron. Suffolk is home to the likes of Canon USA, Estee Lauder, Lenovo and Nikon USA – not to mention the Hampton’s “gold coast.” This is a valuable new data tranche.

The Filters. The enhanced state court analytics offer the standard Lex Machina benchmarking data on judges, courts, law firms, individual attorneys. Notable features of this enhanced

coverage include filters for trial rulings, trial resolutions, and trial damages, and the ability to quickly drill down to relevant data sets using an extensive collection of filters for case types and documents. Additional functionality includes cross-court filters to conduct state-wide searches and  multi-court analytics on judges, courts, law firms, attorneys, and parties.
