Why Use Online Citators
Citators Serve Two Distinct Purposes:
1. Validation - To make sure your case is still good law.
2. Research - To find cases and other sources that have cited your case.
Case History and Case Treatment
Citators Examine Two Things About a Case:
1. History of a Case - History refers to the procedural progress of your case through the appellate courts. The litigation chain of your case.
2. Treatment of a Case - Treatment refers to the way in which your case is used as authority in subsequent cases.
