Casemaker Weekly – July 8th, 2020

by Alexa Drago on July 8, 2020

 

Case Digest, previously known as CasemakerDigest, is a summary service of cases that are currently coming out of the court system which is integrated within the Casemaker4 system.  These are usually published within about 72 hours of the case’s publication. After clicking the Case Digest menu on the left-hand side, you can select your area of practice, court, judge, and jurisdiction to view summaries from. The summaries are displayed in the central area of the screen and will provide you with the case name, area of practice, court, the date decided, docket number, judge, and the date it was added to our system. This is in addition to the short summary itself. Just below the listed summary information is a link labeled more. Clicking this link will display the longer, full summary for that case. The case name is a link that when clicked on will take you to the case’s full text in our system.

At the top of the screen, you will find buttons allowing you to add a custom Digest filter. Here you can create a name for your filter and provide a description. Then submit an email address or email addresses that you would like to receive these summaries as emails. You can then select your jurisdiction or jurisdictions, court, judge, practice area and more. You can choose if these filters are updated on a daily or weekly basis.

Any Digest filters you have created are then listed at the top of the digest menu. The Toggle switches here allow you to activate or deactivate those filters, and the pencil and paper icon will allow you to edit the filter.


That is all for this week! We will back with more tips and tricks next week. Thanks again for making Casemaker a Valued Member Benefit.
