USE THE DATABASE AS A “DO-IT-YOURSELF” UPDATE SERVICE

Updates are staples of continuing legal education. By adding the “start” and “end” date criteria (in the second and third lines of the Search Panel at the top of the Latest Posts section on the Home Page and on the right side of every other website page) to any of the search methods explained on the “Just Released,” and “Streamlined Research” pages, you can create your own personalized updates, bringing you up to speed on what courts addressed last week, last month, or last year, in any area of the law.

If, for example, you want to catch up on what the Court of Appeals has ruled so far this year in all areas of the law, choose “All Categories” in the Search Panel, choose January 1, 2023, as the start date and today as the end date, choose “Court of Appeals” from the court menu and click on “Search.”

If you want to get caught up on what the Fourth Department dealt with so far this year in Criminal Law, or Family Law, or Zoning, or any other area of the law, choose the legal category from the drop-down menu in the Search Panel (revealed by clicking on “All Categories”), choose the start and end dates, click on “Fourth Department” and click on “Search.”

Using the Search Panel or the footer, you can call up the most recent decision-summaries in any legal category simply by clicking on the category in the drop-down menu (revealed by clicking on “All Categories”) or by clicking on the category in the footer.

As an aid in reviewing the decision-summaries in the more heavily-populated categories (Personal Injury, Civil Procedure and Criminal Law) the monthly Reversal Reports (formerly “Pamphlets”) are archived here. A quick review of the issues in each report is facilitated by the Tables of Contents.

The 2023 Weekly Reversal Reports are also archived here below. The Weekly Reports compile and organize all the summaries posted each Monday in “Latest Posts” on the Home Page. The Tables of Contents make it easy to skim through each issue in minutes. Use the Weekly Reports to catch up on the most significant decisions in all legal categories.

The most recent Reversal Reports are in the orange-brown panels on the Home Page. As soon as the Reversal Reports on the Home Page are replaced, they are archived here.

“Personal Injury Reversal Reports” (formerly “Negligence Reversal Reports” and “Negligence Pamphlets”)—Published Monthly Since January 2019

Some legal categories generate many more decisions in a given month than others. “Personal Injury” is one of them. The “Personal Injury Reversal Reports” (formerly “Negligence Reversal Reports” and “Negligence Pamphlets”) (linked to below) collect all the decision-summaries (mostly reversals) in the “Personal Injury” categories (Negligence, Labor Law-Construction Law, Workers’ Compensation, Retirement and Social Security Law, General Municipal Law, Ect.) posted on this site each month. The “Table of Contents” lists all the issues addressed by the “Personal Injury” summaries and each “Table of Contents” entry links to the decision-summary, which in turn links to the full decision on the New York State Law Reporting Bureau website. To return to the “Table of Contents” from the body of the report, just click on “Table of Contents” in the header. Any decision-summaries in this category posted after the latest report is published will come up simply by clicking on relevant category in the Search Panel or the Footer.

Note: Before Relying On Any Decision Summarized on this Site, Make Sure It Remains Good Law Using the Method You Trust for that Purpose. See the Discussion Under “Shepardize” in the “How to Use the New York Appellate Digest” Section on the Home Page.

“Civil Procedure” is a pervasive legal category, in part because most civil cases reach the Appellate Division based upon motion practice (motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, etc.). The “Table of Contents” in the “Civil Procedure” reports linked to below facilitates a quick review of the “Civil Procedure” issues addressed by our appellate courts since January 2019.
