Citation graphs are at the core of expert knowledge propagation and verification, regardless of domain, whether legal or scientific. We discuss two projects that explore citation graphs. Specifically, we define the problems, propose our methodology, as well as demonstrate the challenges and results. The first project looks at legal precedent, and the second focuses on the impact of scientific retraction.
