Specifically designed for legal indexers, the CaseCheck utility validates case citations in tables of cases. [Note: this product is intended for use with case citations found in the U.S.]
CaseCheck works in two phases: first syntactical validations are performed and then cross checking is performed. The latter phase checks to see if a primary reporter cite is used for more than one case name.
Syntactical messages include but are not limited to:
- missing/improper reporter abbreviations, e.g., "F. 3d" rather than "F.3d"
- report with missing volume
- missing decision years
- missing/improper tribunals, e.g., "W. D. N. Y." rather than "W.D.N.Y." or "7th Cir" not "7th Cir."
- subsequent actions not in italics
- subsequent action years not in chronological order
Example of a primary reporter used for two case citations where the defendant name is different.
Epistar Corp. <v.> International Trade Comm'n, 566 F.3d 1321, 91 USPQ2d 1180 (Fed. Cir. 2009)
Epistar Corp. <v.> ITC, 566 F.3d 1321, 91 USPQ2d 1180 (Fed. Cir. 2009)
- CaseCheck utilizes a configuration file which you can customize for different situations. The default configuration that comes with the software has the standard Blue Book abbreviations, lists of federal and state tribunals, common reporters abbreviations, etc.
- You can indicate strings of text you wish to have reported when found in a case citation.
