Find out what the judge is likely to think of your case

September 15, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysWestlaw tip: Ever wondered if your judge has ruled on a similar argument? You can find decisions by a particular judge by using the judge field – JU(NAME).

For example if you wanted to search for opinions from Judge Blackstone, the search would be: ju(Blackstone). You can combine the judge field with your other search terms, too. The search ‘ju(Blackstone) & “mens rea” ‘ will return all opinions by Judge Blackstone that contain the phrase “mens rea.”
