New Enhancement to Shepard's® Graphical History on Lexis+®

Researchers need a way to understand the full litigation history of a case including ones that have many history events. Currently, the graphical history map includes the most important cases in the history chain.

The Shepard’s® graphical history map now includes filters to help researchers more quickly view certain types of history (ex: Judgments/Dismissals, Stays, Habeas & Post-Conviction Proceedings, and more.) Only those categories that have case history related to each topic will show in the list of filter options. 

Click on Judgments/Dismissals to see nodes added to the graph and the legend changes to include the selected category.

Select Other Decisions to see stacked nodes and an added court level.

Scroll right to see more. Select “Clear Selection” on the right panel to go back to the original view.
