Knowledge & Research Consultant Tip: Searching Lexis® Courtlink® using Filters

Take advantage of the segments on CourtLink to create a precise search and easily retrieve the documents you need. This is really helpful when you want to retrieve a complaint, use the title segment to identify complaints as the type of document, and then add search terms for specificity.

For example, to find complaints that contain the phrase “patent infringement,” search Court Documents for:
Title(complaint) and “patent infringement”

As you build a segment search or a terms and connector search on CourtLink, keep in mind the connectors, and their priority to ensure you get the most relevant results.
