Using a Pin Cite
Have a pin cite? No worries, Casemaker knows what to do. Enter the pin cite in the search bar and Casemaker will pull up the case that particular page is located in. Simple and easy!
You can select a jurisdiction or any combination of jurisdictions to search by clicking the Jurisdiction menu. This is located in the box located between the search box and the blue search button. There is a blue downward pointing arrow in the right side of this box. Clicking on this arrow will pull up the pop-up menu and from here you can check as many or as few boxes as you need.
At the top of the list of states in the Jurisdiction menu, you will notice a checkbox for Related Federal. This tells Casemaker to not only pull cases for the state you selected, but also for the Federal District and Circuit courts related to that state. So if you select Virginia and also select Related Federal you will get not only Virginia state level cases but also the Eastern and Western District of Virginia court cases as well as cases in the Fourth Circuit. This means you will get cases from other states in your circuit as well, in the case of our example – Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia cases would also be included. However, this would again only be cases in your circuit, not any outside of it.
