Abstract

Tagging court decisions as to their importance is indispensable for the accessibility of voluminous case law repositories, but such an attribute has been implemented in only a few databases yet. In this paper some of these are briefly discussed and a lowest common denominator is proposed. This could be especially useful in federated search solutions like the ECLI Search Engine.

Keywords: Case law databases, Legal importance, ECLI, Legal authority
