*** Casemaker continues to expand
This week, Casemaker’s Federal Library expanded significantly to include U.S. District Court opinions since 1950, Circuit Court opinions since 1930 and U.S. Supreme Court opinions since 1754. Opinions from the U.S. District Court and Circuit Court have the West pagination, but Supreme Court opinions do not. Simply use citations or case names to retrieve as usual, with no additional charge to CBA members. Questions? Call the Casemaker hotline at (303) 860-1115 or (800) 332-6736. 

*** E-Filing: What qualifies as Official Service

Some confusion exists about Official E-Service through File & Serve - e-filing in the Colorado state court system. Many File & Serve subscribers rely on e-mail notifications to know that a document has been e-served upon them. Be aware: the e-mail notification feature does not constitute service and is provided by LexisNexis File & Serve solely as a convenience. It is the responsibility of the subscriber to regularly and proactively check the Online Inbox for E-Filed and E-Served documents. Read more details, including some tips, about The Area of Official Service on the CBA's website

*** Tip of the Week

Easily Print Only a Selection of a Document or Website
Oftentimes, you want to print only a selected portion of a document. It may be a table, a paragraph, a picture, a sentence, etc. You could copy the item, create a new document in Word, paste the item into the document, and then you could print it.
But there's a much easier way! Highlight the item or the text just as you would if you wanted to copy it. Choose File then Print - as you would usually do. A box comes up that defaults to Page Range as All. Take your cursor and click on Selection. Then print as usual.
You will now have a copy of just the selection you wanted, without everything else on the page, and you didn't have to go to the trouble of creating a new document to do it!
Feel free to contact Reba Nance at with questions.
