Federal and state case law powered by Fastcase is now integrated into all HeinOnline Core subscriptions at no additional cost!
Case Law Linking from Publications in HeinOnline
Like Hein’s ScholarCheck feature, when viewing a document in HeinOnline, the references will now link to the cases in addition to other types of documents cited in HeinOnline. When an article cites a case, the case citation will be highlighted in blue. The blue highlighted case citations link to the case in either HeinOnline or Fastcase. When you link to the case powered by Fastcase, you will stay inside HeinOnline. Thus, you will not need to adjust any authentications or proxy settings, but you will notice a slight change in format. Where HeinOnline provides the exact page replications of the original document, Fastcase provides a reformatted, plain text version.
Case Law Citation Look-Up
Core subscribers will now see a Fastcase tab when logged into HeinOnline. Use this tab to retrieve case law by Bluebook citation. From this tab you will see a citation search box which will allow you to copy and paste a case law citation directly into the search box. In addition, we also provide a Direct Citation option which will allow you to type in the volume, use a drop-down menu for the case abbreviation and enter the page number to find your citation. Both options will retrieve the full text of the case in Fastcase's HTML format

The federal case coverage includes: Judicial opinions of the Supreme Court (1754–present), Federal Circuits (1924 present), Board of Tax Appeals (vols. 1–47), Tax Court Memorandum Decisions (vols. 1–59), U.S. Customs Court (vols. 1-70), Board of Immigration Appeals (1996–present), Federal District Courts (1924–present), Federal Bankruptcy Courts (1 B.R. 1–present).
