2. If you know which jurisdiction issued the decision you are looking for, narrow your search accordingly.

3. Type the case name in the search box.  For example, here, you would simply type in Marbury v. Madison.

4. The case you are looking for will almost certainly show up in your top 10 search results.  In this example, the case we selected was the first case on the list.
