Do you need to find an older version of a statute? Casemaker can help!
There are two ways to see earlier versions of a statute. One is to pull up the current statute in Casemaker. Once you get to statute content you will notice at the top a tab that says “Archive.” Clicking on the “Archive” tab will give you any previous versions we have available.
The other method to find previous versions of statutes is to use the Archive tab on the home page. When you are viewing the list of states from the home page, just above the list of states is a tab labeled “Archive”. Click on that tab then choose “Statutes”. Next click the state you need previous versions of the statute in. From there you can browse any older versions of the statutes we have available.
There are times you need to know if any cases mention a particular statute. Casemaker can help!
To see cases which reference a particular statute – pull up the statute in question to read the content. You will notice a bar running along the top of the statute. In that bar is a tab labeled “Annotator.” Clicking on this link will pull up any cases that cite the statute.
