Supreme Court Citation Network Tool on CourtListener

The above visualization graphs the network of cases linking Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1 (1976), and Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310 (2010), displaying 32 U.S. Supreme Court cases that cite Buckley and are cited by Citizens United.

This visualization graph was created using the new Supreme Court Citation Network tool at CourtListener. This online tool is free to use, but it will require you to register first.

The Supreme Court Citation Network tool was jointly developed by Professor Colin Starger from the University of Baltimore School of Law and the Free Law Project. Check out this recent blogpost from the Free Law Project for more information on the Citation Network tool.
