Shepardize a case easily through Nexis Uni. When you shepardize a case, you will find "citing decisions" that refer to the original case. Those appeals may affirm, question, or overturn the original case.
Note: You may also search for a case through "Get a Doc Assistance" link found under the main search box.
After clicking "Shepardize this document", you can narrow/filter in a variety of ways:
by Publication Status
and more specific courts within each of these
by Discussion (aka Depth of Discussion Indicator)
(NOTE: Though visible, we do not have the narrow by Headnotes feature.)
You can sort your results in four ways. The default sort is by Court.
When you retrieve cases in Nexis Uni, the case will have one of seven possible Signal Indicators (icon) right before the title. The icon indicates how citing cases refer to the case.
