They will also be closed for New Years on Monday, January 1st and will reopen on Tuesday, January 2nd at 8 am EST. During the winter holiday, they will be pausing these Weekly messages. They will restart January 3rd.

Copy with Citation and Shareable Link

“Copy with Citation” allows the user to highlight a section of text from a document and copy the content to the user’s clipboard along with an official citation. A user can also choose to select text and “Copy with a Shareable Link.” A hyperlink, included with the text in the user’s clipboard, allows any person - even a non-Casemaker user - to view the complete text of the linked case.

Citing References and Citing Cases Graph

When viewing search results, the number of cases that cite the case in question is provided as part of the result set in the right margin. In addition, a "Citing Cases Graph" is also available that provides a graphic display of the citing cases, by count, on a timeline. Once in the graph, a user can pick a point in time to see the citing cases and link to them if desired. When you are reading a case, you will see a tab labeled “Citing References” along the top grey bar. This lists all the cases which cited the case you are viewing. You can see Casecheck+ results here and you can also search within this list of cases as well.

Tree View

The Tree View interface consists of an expandable hierarchy is contained in a left-hand sidebar while the center area displays the document content when requested. To navigate you click on the plus and minus symbols to expand and collapse sections of the “tree.” The Casemaker Tree View interface includes all data types and the full archive of data for each respective state.
