Free Access to Older Mass. Cases

Via the Massachusetts Law Updates blog, the Massachusetts Trial Court Libraries announced today the completion of a project to provide free online access to all Supreme Judicial Court and Mass. Appeals Court cases from 1986 to 1996. (Cases starting in 1997 are already available through Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.) The cases are available through the Web site, where they can be found by citation, name or word search. The collection also includes hundreds of frequently cited older Mass. cases.
