Case Laws Debute in Google Scholar

This just in from the official Google Blog…

Starting [November 17], Google Scholar will allow you to find and read full-text legal opinions from U.S. and state district, appellate, and supreme courts using Google Scholar. You can search for cases (Planned Parenthood v. Casey), topics (desegregation), or other keywords. If you try the query separate but equal, your search results will include links to such familiar cases as Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education, as well as opinions from less familiar cases. ResourceShelf has more details….
