Do you need help understanding Shepard's® Citations in LexisNexis Academic?
During your legal research, did you ever look at a case within LexisNexis Academic and see a red icon at the top that looks like a stop sign? Maybe a yellow triangle? These are Shepard's icons from the Shepard's® Citations service. These icons are there to show the previous treatment of the case - in other words, whether or not the case is still "good law." If the case has been overruled, it is considered "bad law" and may no longer be cited as a legal precedent. The Shepard's Citations service also provides a report that shows every opinion where that case has been referenced.
If you need help understanding and using Shepard's Citations, take a look at our Shepard's Citations wiki article. The article shows you how to "Shepardize" a case, how to read the report, and gives you an icon key, as seen on the left. Happy Shepardizing!
