Filtering "Citing Cases" by Motion Type:

The "Citing Cases" section will show you all cases that cite to your case, statute, rule, or regulation, regardless of motion type. But you have the option of limiting your results to cases that involve a motion to dismiss, a motion for summary judgment, or a motion to compel discovery. These options are presented under the filter entitled "Motion type," which appears along the left-hand side of the "Citing Cases" page, right under the jurisdiction filter.

To limit your results to one or more of these motion types, check the box next to your desired motion(s). For example, if you just want to see the citing cases that involve a motion for summary judgment, check the box next to that:

Filtering "Citing Cases" by Cause of Action:

You have the option of limiting the list of "Citing Cases" to those cases involving a specific cause of action. Suggested causes of action for limiting your results appear under the "Cause of action" heading. To see a complete list of all available causes of action, select "more causes of action."

To limit your results to one or more causes of action, check the box next to your desired cause(s) of action. For example, if you just want to see the citing cases that involve a claim for breach of fiduciary duty, check the box next to "breach of fiduciary duty."

Filtering "Citing Cases" by Party Type

You have the option of limiting the list of "Citing Cases" to those cases involving a party in a specific industry. Suggested party types for limiting your results appear under the "Party type" heading. To see a complete list of all available causes of action, select "more party types."

To limit your results to one or more party type, check the box next to your desired type(s) of party. For example, if you just want to see the citing cases that involve a party in commercial banking, check the box next to "commercial banking."

Filtering "Citing Cases" by Date

The list of "Citing Cases" is initially unrestricted by date, but if you would like to limit your results to a specific date range (January 1 of year A through December 31 of Year B), you can do so using the date filter, which appears under the heading that says "Any time" at the lower left-hand side of the "Citing Cases" page. Type your desired years into the search box and click the blue magnifying glass to limit your results to those years:
