  • To search by phrase, encapsulate the phrase in quotation marks.
  • If your search returns too many results, try a more specific query. If you are searching for a post about a particular case, try searching for the case’s docket number, or the name of one of the parties. (Or browse our Case Files archive; the case page for which you are looking will link to all of our posts about the case.)
  • If you know the type of post for which you are looking, consider browsing our Category Archives rather than searching.
  • If you are still unable to locate the post for which you are looking, consider searching via Google. Google allows you to search for pages within a particular site by including “site:[url]” in your query.
