Scope of Coverage

The ROSS platform is able to offer access to a comprehensive body of case law from the United States Supreme Court, Circuit Courts of Appeals, District Courts, Bankruptcy Courts and State Supreme and Appellate court levels, as well as many special federal speciality courts and a selection of administrative boards.

With coverage of case law that either meets or exceeds the coverage of other legal research platforms, ROSS offers the industry standard for access to important case law. The module also includes unpublished cases, as well as comprehensive collections of Federal statutes and regulations and State statutory law and regulations for New York, California, Florida, Massachusetts and Texas. Case law is published daily on ROSS and the Federal and State statutes and codes are consistently updated.
