View the holding most related to the issue for which a recommended case is being provided, so you can verify immediately whether the case is in your favor or not.

Quickly review relevant text to help determine whether the recommendation is helpful or not.

See additional details for why a suggested authority might be important such as frequently cited, from a high court, or decided in the past 2 years.
