If you already know which Section or Subpart of the CFR you want to retrieve, fill in the following boxes. Choose a revision year (you probably want to leave the scroll box at "Most Recent Available") and then add the CFR Title and Part. In addition, you must fill in EITHER a Section number or a Subpart letter, but not both. (Example: If you are looking for 42 CFR 413.1, fill in Title 42, Part 413, Section 1; if you are looking for the entire Subpart A of 42 CFR 413, fill in Title 42, Part 413, Subpart A)

To use the Web as a citator, type main names of case in a "full text" or "word" search. If the Court, such as the Fla. Supreme Ct., does not provide for a "full text" search, use a full text search engine such as "Google" or "Fast".
Example: To check State v. Mitro (Fla. 1997), type in the "Google" search box, "state v. mitro". This will produce a New Hampshire case Douglas v. Douglas, yielding the So. 2d citation for Mitro. A Google search of "douglas v. douglas" and "new hampshire" will give American Express v. David Moskoff, giving the A 2d citation for Douglas.
