Google has put out a formal announcement regarding their new feature — the ability to use Google Scholar to locate Federal and State case law (and patents too). This is another option for researching cases online. There are several good blog posts today on the topic. For additional information, check out any (or all) of the following:
Legal Info Now Part of Google Scholar Database from Resource Shelf
