Tip: Filtering Search Results by Jurisdiction

When you generate a list of caselaw search results on Fastcase, you have the ability to filter the list to cases from just one jurisdiction.

For example, let’s say you search for “default judgment” in all Federal Appellate Courts.  You will get at least 5,800 results.

If you want to view only the decisions of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, there is no need to re-run your search in the Seventh Circuit database. Instead, just select “Federal 7th Circuit” from the Jurisdiction filter at the top, left-hand side of the screen.

Your results list will go from 5,800+ results down to the 500+ results from the Seventh Circuit.  The other cases will be temporarily hidden.

Get back to the full list by selecting “All Jurisdictions” from the drop-down Jurisdiction filter.
