How to Search LexisNexis

Look up Legal Cases

  • LexisNexis only includes:
    1. Cases that have reached a verdict
    2. Cases that are on a state level or higher
    3. Cases from certain years
  • If you are looking for a case, click on Look up a Legal Case.
  • If you have the citation, use the By Citation box
  • If you have information about the companies or people involved, use the By Parties boxes.
  • Parties may be involved in more than one case, so the name of the court (example: Colorado Court of Appeals) and the date of the decision can help narrow down your search
  • If you would like to search cases by topic, use the By Topic Box
