Searching Using the Federal and State Cases Search Form
If you have a case citation or would like to search for opinions on a topic (e.g., "freedom of speech") across all of the federal and state courts, simply enter your citation or terms in the main search box and click Search. To search for a citation, format your search using the CITE(citation) segment.
