If you’ve recently conducted a Google search of your name and discovered an article related to legal battles or court proceedings from CaseText.com, there’s a good chance you don’t want others finding this information. If that’s the case, you’ve arrived at the right place. Depending on the nature of the proceeding and your involvement, the link could be negatively affecting your personal and professional opportunities. Thankfully, if there is an article about you from the CaseText website, it can easily be removed from search engines – just follow the steps below.
Remove a Casetext Listing From Search Results
Upon request, Casetext will block cases and opinion articles from search engines. This means that although the information will still exist on Casetext, it will no longer show up in any Google search results.
1. Copy the URL of the Casetext case containing your details.
2. Send an email to Castext’s support team.
Casetext’s designated email for removals is removals(at)casetext.com. Within the email include the following information:
- Your Full Name
- The URL of the case containing your information
- Your relationship to the case
- Why you wish to have the case blocked from appearing in Google search results
3. Provide any additional documentation to Casetext at their request.
Casetext may request supporting documentation or information to verify your identity. They will confirm via email when the information has been blocked for Google results. In a short time, Google will recognize these changes and remove the information from its listings. If you have access to a Google Search Console account, you can speed up the process by submitting an outdated content removal request.
What is CaseText.com?
CaseText.com is what is known as an aggregator website. It is a collection of data that is pulled from various sources across the internet, compiled in one place for users to easily access. The site uses CARA, an artificial intelligence-based software that allows its users to quickly search and pinpoint court cases and documents. Similar to WestLaw and LexisNexis, CaseText is specifically geared towards legal professionals and firms to research past and present court cases, statutes, regulations, and rules, both on the federal and state levels.
CaseText’s database contains a plethora of briefs that have been filed by government agencies, national litigation practices, law firms, and major non-profit organizations. Essentially, anything needed for legal research can be found here. Each posting contains a judicial opinion and overview, as well as case details, such as the parties involved and the court it was held in. CaseText reviews are astounding too – its highly affordable subscription has easily made this platform a popular alternative to LexisNexis and WestLaw, both of which are utilized by other legal aggregator sites.
Most of the information found on CaseText.com can only be accessed via its paid subscription, given that the site is primarily used by attorneys and law firms. They do, however, provide a free, comprehensive guide consisting of various legal tools that can be leveraged to obtain public records, court proceedings, and more – all without a subscription.
How did CaseText.com get your info and why are they posting it?
Since judicial opinions are considered public domain documents, CaseText has every right to post this information. Its legal database houses millions of judicial opinions and orders from federal and state courts. If you were involved in a legal proceeding in one of its featured jurisdictions, chances are, a briefing of the case is published here.
CaseText partners with Tracers to allow its users to search public records. The categories of public records that can be found via Tracers on CaseText.com include criminal records, civil judgments, eviction and foreclosure records, business and property records, court records, asset searches, deed records, and much more. The range of data includes federal, state, and local information, both private and regulated.
Is CaseText.com Opt-Out Possible?
Finding legal information about yourself online can be incredibly nerve-racking. Some questions that run through your mind may include: How many others have found this information? How can it be removed ASAP? Despite the information being considered public information, CaseText.com removal doesn’t have to be a challenge. It is possible to have it completely removed from the internet. Our experts can do this for you – 100% guaranteed.
If you’re dealing with a CaseText.com article (or any unwanted search result for that matter) schedule a free, no-pressure call with one of our Reputation Advisors. They will review the situation and provide you with actionable steps so you can get started cleaning up your reputation right away.
Other sites like CaseText that may also have your information
CaseText.com is just one of many legal aggregator sites that house public information related to court proceedings. As we mentioned above, these types of sites gather information from a variety of sources. CaseText in particular is powered using CARA, their own A.I. platform, in conjunction with Tracers. Due to the number of sites like these available, if you find your information on one, you can count on it being found on other sites of the same nature. The most popular of these sites include Justia.com, PacerMonitor.com, Law360.com, TrellisLaw.com, DocketBird.com, and Unicourt.com. Luckily, our experts can remove links related to these sites from Google search results as well.
Outside of the various legal aggregation sites available, data broker sites also post your information. Data brokers are sites like Spokeo, MyLife, WhitePages, and BeenVerified. They include information related to court cases, and traffic and criminal reports, among other personal information such as your address, phone number, email address, age, and more. Each of these sites has its own opt-out procedures and guidelines. We also have a tool that will identify your information on more than 25 of these sites, and remove the information for you. You can check it out here.
Continuing to protect your online reputation
A CaseText.com removal is certainly a first step in safeguarding your online reputation. But, it is far from solving your problem. If you aren’t actively monitoring and maintaining a positive online presence, you’re leaving yourself open to the possibility of other negative or unwanted search results popping up down the road.
Due to this, we recommend removal combined with reputation management. This process is broken down into three simple steps:
Create a foundation of profiles and sites that you control.
Controlling the first page of search results requires you to have enough content to “fill” in those results. Google’s average number of search results is 10, so we recommend a minimum of 10-12, well-built web properties. This includes personal websites and professional social media properties that can be leveraged, such as Twitter and LinkedIn.
Optimize your profiles and content for search engines.
There is a multitude of factors that go into creating well-optimized content and web properties for search engines. The two primary ingredients are to include your full name (or the name that people look you up by) in key areas and to flesh out each site/profile with as many details as possible.
Regularly update your content.
Search engines will rank sites and profiles based on how well-maintained and active they are. Regularly publishing content, posting to social media, and keeping your information updated and relevant are key contributors to dominating the first page of search results.
This process can be a lot to take in. If you’re unsure of where to start, give us a call: 646-863-8282. We look forward to helping you!
