Advanced Search

The Advanced Search query allows you to locate single words or phrases (as in a Quick Search) or a combination of words and phrases, using search logic at work in the four search fields shown below. Search terms entered in the "with all the words" field must all occur together in the document, in any order. Search terms entered in the "with the exact phrase" field must all occur in the document, in the specified order. Search terms entered in the "with at least one of the words" field do not all have to occur in the document, as long as one of them does. And search terms entered in the "without the words" field cannot occur in the document. Search terms can be entered in one or any combination of these four fields.

For example, searching on grazing in the "with all the words" field and permit lease in the "with at least one of the words" field will locate any case that contains the word grazing and either the word permit or the word lease (or both). An asterisk serves as a wildcard for any number of characters (e.g., manage* will locate manage, manager, management, etc.); a question mark serves as a wildcard for a single character (e.g., manage? will locate manager, manages, managed.) See Help Pages for additional information.
