Options will vary depending on the amount of information that you have to begin your search. Look at the following illustration using LexisNexis Academic legal search boxes.
HAZELWOOD SCHOOL DISTRICT ET AL. v. KUHLMEIER ET AL.
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
484 U.S. 260; 108 S. Ct. 562; 98 L. Ed. 2d 592; 1988 U.S. LEXIS 310; 56 U.S.L.W. 4079; 14 Media L. Rep. 2081 (*Please notice that each citation format is divided by a semicolon.)
You can search by citation, parties, or by topic keyword search terms.
Search Tip #1: Do not use the entire string of citations and numbers. You will not get any results.
Search Tip #2: Check the spelling of all names, keywords, and parties. Precise accuracy of all numbers, spacing, and words is required.
Search Tip #3: Run a Shepard's Citation search using each of the citation formats provided. Find this search box under the Search by Subject or Topic menu.
Search Tip #4: Use the parties Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier to run a search using the Federal and State Cases search box. Use one party name plus one citation format 484 U.S. 260 AND Hazelwood to refine the search. Remember that for some court cases, there are many levels of decisions based on appeals.
