I wrote in February about the free public-records search engine Pretrieve. Today, in a development of significance to the legal profession, Pretrieve announced that it has integrated searching of nationwide court records. It covers all state and local courts in the United States that offer Internet searches of case records. When court records are available, you’ll find links to them on the “Court” tab of the search results.
