Excellent Citator — even more flags
  • LexisNexis: Typical citator (red, green and yellow flags) – category only.
  • Casetext: Red, green, yellow and orange flags. Orange flags to tell you when a case hasn’t been overturned, but relies on one that was. We also go beyond flags and have concise sumaries of important treatment.

Small Firm
“It provides the clients with a lot less expensive method of our producing quality work to give to the judge who's on their case. Not only is there no pass-through charge like we had with LexisNexis, but we charge by the hour. So the faster we work, the better it is for our client.”

“You will be able to collect your pension by the time you finish your LexisNexis search results. That's why I use Casetext.”

Judge
“In a perfect world, litigants would cite to all relevant case law in their briefs. In the real world, litigants often do not. Casetext can help judges and their clerks quickly find important case law that the parties may have overlooked.
