The Lex Machina team is excited to launch Legal Analytics for Fulton County Superior Court, Fulton County State Court (together, “Fulton County”), DeKalb County Superior Court, and DeKalb County State Court (together, “DeKalb County”). These courts cover state capital Atlanta, a major government and business epicenter in which upward of 5 million citizens conduct business. Including a combined total of over 100,000 civil court cases filed January 2016 or later, these are significant venues for state court litigation.

Lex Machina provides valuable data-driven insights about judges, law firms, individual attorneys, and parties in state courts. In addition, the Georgia modules incorporate notable features such as filters for orders regarding summary judgment, appointment of special masters, class actions, and trials. They also incorporate an extensive collection of case types and document tags, including document tags for orders regarding summary judgment, jury verdicts, and judgments.
