LAST WEEK'S DECISION SUMMARIES
The "Just Released" page will be kept current on this site for the time being. The "Just Released" button (on the left) takes you to the summaries of decisions released last week (November 4, 2019 - November 8, 2019).

AS EXPLAINED BELOW, THE SEARCH FUNCTION ON THE NEW SITE HAS ELIMINATED THE NEED FOR THE MONTHLY DIGEST ISSUES AND THE "YEAR IN REVIEW" OUTLINES
PLEASE CHECK OUT AND EXPLORE THE NEW SITE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CLE COURSES (7.5 CREDITS) OFFERED THERE AT NO COST
THE NEW WEBSITE---JUST RELEASED
The summaries of decisions released the week before are in the "Latest Posts" section of the new site on the Home Page. The decision-summaries are organized in the "Latest Posts" section by date, not legal category, with the most recent decisions first. To find the most recent decision-summaries in a specific category on the new site, click on "All Categories" in the search panel and click on the category in the drop-down menu, or simply click on the category in the footer.
THE NEW WEBSITE--MONTHLY ISSUES OF THE DIGEST
Because of the search function on the new site, there is no longer a need to collect the decision-summaries issued in a given month in a single document. Using the "start" and "end" dates in the search panel, you can tailor your search to any specific time period going back to January, 2013, to any specific legal category (or to all legal categories), and to any specific court (or to all courts). For example, choosing "All Categories," April 1, 2019, as the "start" date and April 30, 2019, as the "end" date, and typing in "Fourth Department" in the "keywords" line will bring up the Fourth Department's output in April. Leave the "keywords" line blank and all the courts' output in April will come up. Choose specific legal categories and specific courts to narrow your "April 2019" searches. The decision-summaries in the database on the new site number over 10,000. Every decision-summary which was published in a monthly digest since January, 2013, is in the database on the new site.
THE NEW WEBSITE---YEAR IN REVIEW OUTLINES
The point of the "Year in Review" outlines was to organize the decision-summaries by issuing court, to allow an overview of a specific court's output during the year to date. Searches on the new site can be narrowed to a specific court and to any time-period going back days, weeks, months or years, completely replacing the function of the "Year in Review" outlines.
ORIGINAL (THIS) WEBSITE---MONTHLY ISSUES OF THE DIGEST
The March, 2019, issue of the Digest is the last one (as explained above, the search function on the new site eliminates the need for the monthly digests). All of the monthly issues going back to January, 2013, will remain available on this site. Click on the "Issue Guide" button on the left for access to them.
ORIGINAL (THIS) WEBSITE---YEAR IN REVIEW OUTLINES
The "Year in Review" Outlines will no longer be issued (as explained above, the search function on the new site effectively replaces them). The outlines produced in 2018, 2017 and 2016 will remain available on this site. Click on the "Issue Guide" button on the left for access.
