Relevance Sort Is the New Default for Court Opinion Searches
When running searches for Court Opinions through a Court Opinions database in the All Legal Content search and from the Court Opinions search tool, results are now displayed in relevance order, although users still have the ability to resort results by date, court or by most cited opinions. Bloomberg Law’s court opinion relevance algorithm sorts search results based on the factors most important to a legal researcher, including the responsiveness of the opinion to your query, the date of the opinion, the issuing precedential authority of the issuing court, and citation history.
