Title: (EN) USER INTERFACE FOR SEARCHING AND DISPLAYING LEGAL CASE HISTORIES
Abstract:
(EN) An exemplary legal research system provides graphical user interfaces to client access devices, with the user interfacesspecifically designed to facilitate access to procedural case histories. Each interface is dynamically customized based on theprocedural relationships of a plurality of legal cases to provide hyperlinks to corresponding case law documents. The hyperlinks arepositioned within indicator band of the interface to indicate corresponding tiers of a court system, but also to mirror the proceduraland temporal relationships of legal cases corresponding to the case law documents. Additionally, the exemplary interface includescase validity indicators to signal the precedential value or status of corresponding legal cases. The graphical user interface, in someembodiments, provides analogous access to statutory information.
