Casemaker Weekly - February 15th
Wednesday, February 15, 2017
Citecheck saves you time by verifying all the citations in a document. Simply upload a document such as a brief, pleading or even just a list of citations, then in a few moments, Citecheck will return a report which indicates if there has been negative treatment on any of the citations in the document. Citecheck can be found under the Features tab (formerly Tools) on the main Casemaker page.
Did you know you can sort your results by more than just relevance? Once you have completed a search, click on the View All link to see all the results in the document category you prefer. Once you do this you can sort these results by selecting a sort method from the dark gray bar above the results list. You can sort by Relevance, Most Cited, Date Decided or State (Ascending or Descending).
Click on the Casemaker logo in the upper left at any time to return to the Casemaker home page. You can also return to the home page by clicking the Home link in the upper right corner of Casemaker.
Citation Format and Autocorrect
Casemaker uses the Bluebook citation format. Casemaker also will auto-correct your citations for you. For example, if you enter 567 f3d 1120 in the search bar, Casemaker will correct your entry to 567 F.3d 1120. If you need to disable this for any reason, simply check the Turn off Autocorrect box before performing your search.
