Casemaker User Tips
SuperCODE identifies changes to statutes and codes. SuperCODE is the exclusive Casemaker feature that identifies session laws which may affect the documents that users view. SuperCODE appears on the right-hand side of the screen and displays hyperlinks to session laws that reference the document currently being viewed. By clicking on the hyperlink (if present) the user is immediately transported to the segment of the legislation that deals with the current document. Users can then quickly determine if the new law will apply to the salient portion of code of interest.
You can perform a more inclusive search by using the Suffix Expansion feature. Because our search engine is so precise, Casemaker finds only the exact search terms entered into the Full Document Search Query box. However, users may find all word forms of a single word by attaching an asterisk (*) to the end of the word (no spaces allowed). By doing so, users activate the Suffix Expansion feature. If the term stalk* is typed into the Search box, present tense (stalk), plurals (stalks), past tense (stalked), nouns (stalker), and progressive tense verbs (stalking) can all be found in a single search.
