Casemaker’s negative citator, CaseCheck+, rivals the citator functionality found on the leading high cost legal research systems, enabling you to know instantly if the case you’re reading is still good law. 

CaseCheck+ returns negative treatments instantly as you research. You can link to negative treatments and quickly review the citation history for both state and federal cases. CaseCheck+ works seamlessly to identify whether or not a case has been treated negatively by subsequent cases. If there is no negative treatment you will see a green thumbs up (thumbs up icon). If there is negative treatment you will see a red thumbs down (thumbs down icon).

“I just wanted to say thank you for developing CasemakerPro. It is user friendly and the feature enabling the user to check whether or not case law is still “good” is fantastic. Also, the ability to search within your search allows the user to quickly narrow their search.”
