Free Federal Case Law Source Online

From time to time we see something new that's worth a look. This is one of those times.

If you're a young attorney who can't afford to get on Pacer or Lexis or Westlaw to research case law, there are lots of sources out there on the net, including Findlaw, Justia and others. There's a new one worth a look too. is a free collection of federal District Court case decisions that can be useful. It fronts a simple search device, apparently based on Google, that only requires a google-type input to yield results.

The database is apparently about a quarter million written opinions and is kept up to date. We received an appellate decision from the 6th Circuit just a few days ago and by doing a simple subject search at Websupp the decision popped up in a fraction of a second.

If you can afford Lexis or Westlaw, great. If not, take a look at Websupp. The price is pretty hard to beat.
