Casetext's case citator, called "SmartCite," is a collection of features designed to help you assess whether a case is good law and to find other relevant cases citing that opinion. It has two overarching objectives: (1) to alert you to bad law, and (2) to alert you to other cases that you should read before deciding whether to rely on a case.
SmartCite covers reported federal and state court cases. SmartCite does not cover: unreported cases, de-published cases, state trial court cases, or courts of limited jurisdiction, such as administrative courts.
