Understanding QuickCITE® records
QuickCITE records may pertain to cases or legislation:
QuickCITE case records contain two to four sections. The first section always appears and displays the primary case name, court, and judgment date. A list of parallel case citations appears below the title. Citations for reports that are accessible within Lexis Advance Quicklaw appear as hyperlinks, and you can select these hyperlinks to display the associated reports. Following the first section, the History of Case, Citing Cases, and/or Commentary Referring to this Case sections may appear, as descibed in the table below.
QuickCITE legislation records contain two sections. The title of the legislation appears in the first section. The legislation citation appears below the title as a hyperlink which you can select to display the associated legislation document. If the legislation was previously known by a different name, that name is listed below the legislation citation. The Citing Cases section follows the first section, as descibed in the table below.
A QuickCITE signal appears to the left of all case names referenced in both case and legislation records. These signals indicate whether the associated decision has received positive, negative, cautionary, or neutral treatment in subsequent judgments. You can select the Hide Signals and Show Signals button to toggle display the signals on or off. For information on the meaning of QuickCITE signals, see QuickCITE® Signals.
