Shepardizing went 2.0 yesterday with Google Scholar. Google Scholar changed how it references legal citations.
As always, never trust any shepardization other than your own. Although Westlaw and Lexis use human eyes to create their visual indicators, human eyes are still fallible. There have been multiple occasions where the visual indicator referencing a cited case has simply been inaccurate. The same will certainly be true with Google's shepardizing algorithms. So, you must always read to ensure the visual indicator is accurate no matter whether you use Westlaw, Lexis or Google Scholar.
Google Scholar's visual indicators does help lessen the gap... and google scholar is free!
