    Litigation Alpha Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is Litigation Alpha?

    Litigation Alpha is an automated alert system designed to allow those interested in litigation events to find out about docket entries and opinions in near real-time. Subscribe to Litigation Alpha, and when a court document is posted on a litigation docket, you are notified. Get this information in time to act, whether by trading on the information, or protecting an existing position.

    Why would I need Litigation Alpha?

    Are you invested in a stock awaiting an important court decision? Typical media outlets can take up to several hours to report a court decision. That time can compromise your trade or existing position. With Litigation Alpha, you can be alerted about a court decision quickly after it issues.

    Who uses Litigation Alpha?

    Prior to this public launch, the users of Litigation Alpha were its developers (Markman Advisors), and their consulting clients -- primarily hedge funds and family offices. Markman Advisors has been using Litigation Alpha for months to monitor litigations for the following companies: Parkervision (NASDAQ:PRKR), Vringo (VRNG), MGT (NYSEMKT:MGT), Unwired Planet (UPIP), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Crossroads (NASDAQ:CRDS), Document Security Systems (NYSEMKT:DSS), VirnetX(NYSEMKT:VHC), Palo Alto Networks (NYSE:PANW), On Track Innovations (NASDAQ:OTIV), Marvell (MVRL), Avanir (NASDAQ:AVNR) and many others.

    Who should subscribe to Litigation Alpha?

    How does it work?

    Litigation Alpha is currently configured to track docket entries on any case filed and maintained on the PACER system for federal court cases. Subscribers can select the cases of interest to them, and decide whether they want hourly or half-hourly tracking of docket entries. Opinions, which are of most interest to investors, are tracked on a nearly real-time basis. When a new docket entry or opinion is posted on a litigation docket, Litigation Alpha automatically generates an alert for email or push notification to the subscriber. The alerts identify the case, the event, and when appropriate contain a copy of any filed documents.

    What does it cost?

    For basic alerts, Litigation Alpha is priced based on the docket tracking interval, and the number of cases tracked. See for more detail on pricing and to start tracking.
