User interface searching and displaying legal case histories
WO 2007009054 A3
Abstract
An exemplary legal research system provides graphical user interfaces to client access devices, with the user interfaces specifically designed to facilitate access to procedural case histories. Each interface is dynamically customized based on the procedural relationships of a plurality of legal cases to provide hyperlinks to corresponding case law documents. The hyperlinks are positioned within indicator band of the interface to indicate corresponding tiers of a court system, but also to mirror the procedural and temporal relationships of legal cases corresponding to the case law documents. Additionally, the exemplary interface includes case validity indicators to signal the precedential value or status of corresponding legal cases. The graphical user interface, in some embodiments, provides analogous access to statutory information.
