What kinds of searches can I perform?

When you run a search, you have access to nearly all of O’Connor’s Texas content: commentaries, forms, annotated codes and rules, charts, and timetables. You can run the following types of searches:

  • To run a text search, simply type in the terms—without connectors—that describe the issue you’d like an answer to. Your results will be returned as snippets in the Search panel. If you want to search for a phrase, use quotation marks.

  • To run a code search*, simply type in the abbreviation for the code (e.g., CPRC for the Civil Practices & Remedies Code) and the section number to ensure the first result is the code provision you’re looking for.

  • To run a rules search*, simply type in the abbreviation for the rule (e.g., TRCP for Texas Rules of Civil Procedure) and the rule number to ensure the first result is the rule you’re looking for.

  • To run a case name search, simply type in the name of a case (e.g., Daubert-Robinson), and O’Connor’s Online will display all the locations citing or discussing the case.

  • To run a case citation search, simply type in a citation in quotations (e.g., “289 S.W.3d 844”), and O’Connor’s Online will display all the locations citing or discussing the case.

* oconnors.com uses Cards for code and rule provisions. When you search for a code section or rule, Search assumes you want to see that specific section or rule and thus displays a link for it at the top of the search results as a “card.” If you want to see the specific code section or rule, simply select Read more….

    None of the explanations on how to search a rule gave me a response. For example, I typed in, "TRCP 101, and got "0 Results" in response. I typed in, TRE 401 and got same response. What am I doing wrong?

    I never received a response to above comment and question. Any help here?

    Mr Higley,

    I emailed you on November 22nd. Try typing TRCP 15. There isn't a TRCP 101. And, TRE 401 works fine. Note, the search box on this page is just for the FAQs.
