BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he is retiring from the U.S. high court, effective July 31.

Justice Kennedy was the high court’s swing vote on major cases involving abortion, affirmative action, provisions of the Affordable Care Act, voting rights, gay marriage and immigration.
The U.S. Supreme Court issued several important rulings in 2017, including the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s recovery of ill-gotten gains, forum shopping, patent lawsuits and U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission subpoenas.
