Shepards Bankruptcy Citations is organized by area of law, providing coverage for cases, statutes and regulations that are pertinent to a particular subject. You will retrieve U.S. Supreme Court, lower federal and state cases that have cited your subject-specific decision, including histories (such as affirmances and reversals) and analysis on unrelated decisions that may have affected the precedential value of your case (such as cases that criticize, distinguish or overrule your case). Shepards
analysis also includes true positive treatment, which indicates when your case has been expressly followed by another decision. The citations for both cited and citing decisions use citation formats for specialized reports in your area of law, as well as more standard citations. You will also retrieve citations to selected leading law reviews and other secondary sources that have cited your case. For statutes and regulations, citing cases are analyzed for impact, including unconstitutionality and invalidity.
