Original Court Documents
We are not able to provide access to scans of original court documents or case transcripts through WestlawNext. That utility is only available in the full Westlaw product (which we do not have).
If you need a transcript or wish to view the original documentation, you will need to contact the court in question (look for Clerk of Court contact information).
Electronic Case Law Sources
- LexisNexis Legal is a component of LexisNexis Academic: Choose U.S. Legal from the left menu bar. Select Federal and State Cases. Use the drop down box to select the appropriate federal court jurisdiction.
- WestlawNext. Choose all Federal Cases in the Cases section under the main search box.
- In LexisNexis Academic you will need to choose U.S. Legal from the left menu and then U.S. Legal. Use the dropdown jurisdiction box to search by state.
- In WestlawNext you can select State Cases in the Select Databases Section under the search box.
Your search will be the most precise if you search for a particular case by citation - e.g. 411 Md. 629. If you have the party names, you will also get to your results quicker, but may see more than one result (original case, appeals, remanded decisions).
