Google Scholar now has Court Opinions

Entry Categories: News  

Google has added some important content to Google Scholar
http://scholar.google.com/
that should be very helpful to citizens needing free access to online court cases. You can now find and read full text legal opinions from U.S. federal and state district, appellate and supreme courts by searching for cases (like Planned Parenthood v. Casey), or by topics (like desegregation).

I found that the easiest way to limit a search to Nebraska opinions is to click on Advanced Search and select Nebraska in the Legal Opinions and Journals categories at the bottom of the page. Use the search boxes at the top to search by keyword, phrase, court case number (use the exact phrase box), or name. You can also limit results to recent years. I tried a phrase search on Republican River and limited the results to 2009, and got two hits. I was also able to find an opinion using the name of a judge.
