Fastcase Releases NRS Annotations


Fastcase has recently launched its annotated U.S. Code and Nevada Revised Statues, and will release annotations for each U.S. state this summer. 


To view the annotated U.S. Code or any other Fastcase annotations, simply search and view an individual section of the code. At the bottom of each statute is a list of all citing cases.  Unlike with other online annotated codes, Fastcase users can sort the annotations by case name, decision date and number of times a case has been cited. 


Fastcase is a service available free of charge to all active members of the State Bar of Nevada. Fastcase's customer support team is happy to answer questions about using Fastcase; just call (866) 773-2782 (5 a.m. - 5 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday) or e-mail
