Casemaker Tip

Casecheck may save you time and money
If you are looking for the subsequent history of a case in Casemaker, as you read the opinions retrieved from your search, on the right side of the screen you will see "casecheck." Casecheck lets you know if there are other cases referring to your case. If there are no cases, that will also be noted.

The list is categorized by current jurisdictions (e.g., the current state [which would be Alabama], any federal courts, other states). All you need to do is click on the links to display the full text of those cases. Casemaker will automatically take you to the spot in the opinion where your case cite is located.

If you need research assistance with Casemaker between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST, call toll-free (877) 659-0801. A research specialist will be standing by to assist you with Casemaker 2.1.
