FastCase Invigorated

Legal research service/ publisher, Fastcase, has released its own new software version to identify overturned or reversed case law in its "Authority Check" application,'s Law Technology News yesterday reported.

Fastcase, the article recounted, "has provided data visualization timelines, citation analysis and integrated citation history into search results, but, up to now, had no flags or symbols like its competition, LexisNexis's Shepard's Citations or West's KeyCite, to indicate that a case had been overturned or reversed. 'Bad Law Bot' now brings red flags to Authority Check to indicate a case is 'bad law' and should no longer be used as authoritative precedent." [Fastcase's announcement]
