Q. If there are multiple cases with the same name, how can I be sure I have the right case?

Have I found the correct case? Have I found the most recent case?

Answer

Searching for cases by Party Name(s) in Nexis Uni may return a list of similar results. If you have the correct spelling/usage of the Party Name, limiting the case according to time frame, court, state, or judge, can also help to determine if you have the correct case. Reading through the court opinion and Shepardizing the case will also help determine precedent value.
