Understanding Judge Reports in Litigation Profile Suite
Once you find a specific judge whose Litigation Profile Suite profile you want to view, you can select his or her name to view that report:
- Snapshot contains an overall profile of the judge and the ways he or she has been involved in the courts. For example, you can review the judge's contact information, an overview of his or her ruling history, or an abbreviated list of publications which the judge has written or in which he or she has been mentioned. You might also view a list of the top news articles in which the judge has been mentioned. (Each of these sections of the Snapshot view can be explored in greater detail by selecting the corresponding links in the other categories listed in the left-side navigation.)
- Ruling History lists the dockets, case opinions, verdicts and settlements, agency decisions, and so forth in which a judge may be involved.
- Publications lists the different publications the judge has published or in which the judge has been mentioned. It also lists the patents the judge has authored and the various professional directories in which the judge is listed.
- In the News shows different news articles that mention or cite the judge. Types of articles include legal-specific sources as well as Mealey’s news articles.
- Web includes legal content from both the World Wide Web and LexisNexis sources.
