Various law firm librarians started posting this news last night and it appears that there’s no immediate replacement service.
We have just been advised that Bloomberg Law will no longer offer coverage of the UK Court Dockets from August 1st.
A google search about the discontinuation of the service reveals zero results.. so obviously they aren’t being very public about canning the service.
Another library suggests but as they say it’s very hit & miss.
- Lawtel sometimes have the Claim form and progress of a case – but very hit and miss
- Daily cause lists on Lawtel just for names of companies and hearings
- http://casetracker.justice.gov.uk/search.jsp is sometimes helpful but very limited
- CROInfo are about to offer a PAYG docket and court filing retrival service that should be comparable to Bloomberg Law (probably not the alerting though) and say they should have it ready in less than a month’s time. For us this will be easier that buying blocks of time on CE File with a credit card and trying to work out how to apportion it etc.
