Lexbe describes their site as a "free collection of over 900
recent legal articles of interest to litigators and related legal
professionals. All articles are full-text, written by lawyers and
have been published as part of continuing legal education (CLE)
seminars, in legal journals, or are of similar quality."
(beta): More targeted search on legal topics than Google and currently
offered free, Lexisweb provides very fast, very thorough results,
i.e. 23,515 results found for "Ohio custody" in 0.2477
seconds. For those with a Lexis-Nexis account, you can dig deeper
into particular sources.
Quest is another legally-targeted search engine but seemingly not
as thorough and not as targeted as Lexisweb (above). My same search
for "Ohio Custody" on Quest revealed only 1,800 results
and many of them came up only because they contained the word "Ohio,"
not because they had anything to do with the "Custody"
part of my search entry.
Robert Ambrogi says of this site "A standout feature of this
free site is a database of e-discovery case law and rules from all
50 states. Enter a keyword and select a state to find the applicable
entries, or simply select a state to find all cases from that jurisdiction."
history buffs, Google Earth has a very cool new feature, allowing
visitors to explore ancient Rome virtually. The article explaining
it from BBC.com is here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7725560.stm
