At one time I was able to go to a law library in the court house wgere I lived. There wrere law boo
books for all the states for all years. Is there a source of legal cases on the internet?
There are several sources--but they are not free. WestLaw is the one I am most familiar with. There is another higher end program that lawyers use. Usually you have to subscribe to each state that you want to check.
Most states have their revised statutes on line, but they are not annotated and do not give the case law that was used to define the statutory law. There are also some services that track legislation in each state and have references to revised statutes and case law, but again, their are some hefty fees associated with that.
Most library systems, at least in larger communities, will have a set of annotated revised statutes available for use in the library at no charge. These are usually in the branches that are near the courthourse and where law offices seems to cluster together.
Some local libraries have free access to Westlaw (online), which you can use. Check out your closest law school which have law libraries (usually for all states & federal cases) in book form (you can most likely get free access that way). Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis are not free otherwise.
