Case law research


#1

findlaw.com/11stategov/nc/ncca.html. THis only does Appeals and Supreme, but it should help as well. A lot of times I end up googling the cases that are referred to at the bottom of these cases to come up with more info.

Are you doing an appeal?

thank you athos for your response, i am trying to learn how to use that site and i greatly appreciate it.
Ms, Miss, or Mrs. Nevicosi…
This is not for an appeal. Actually its for a few trials that will be coming up on various topics, custody as well as aa. I have been observing trials and have noticed some lawyers introducing examples from other cases in at tiral and I was wondering how to research that. I know aa can be very complicated. I thank you for all you guys offer on this site and hope i can be helpful to others in the future, like ive seen other do, (soccermom) and athos too.
I also look forward to things progressing so i can share my story with you all and maybe help you the way some have helped me

You might want to try findlaw. That is the only place I can think of where it would be free for you to look up these cases. You may also want to purchase a statute book which usually has case law examples in the annotations.

Another FYI, bikerboy…in addition to FindLaw, I’m not sure where you are located, but if you are near a public university which has a law school, the stacks are commonly open to access. You won’t be able to check anything out, but you can go in and research. That should give you information on all levels local, state, and federal.

is there somewhere you can look up case law and see examples on other cases? is there a data base if i am defending myself and i want to look into previous cases with similar circumstances to use in my defense?
God bless
