The typical judicial pathway is made of a judgment by a tribunal followed by a decision of an appellate court. However, the link between both documents is sometimes difficult to establish because of missing, incorrect or badly formatted references, pseudonymization, or poor drafting specific to each jurisdiction. This paper first shows that it is possible to link court decisions related to the same case although they are from different jurisdictions using manual rules. The use of deep learning afterwards significantly reduces the error rate in this task. The experiments are conducted between the Commercial Court of Paris and Appellate Courts.
