Free U.S. Case Law Database Launched at Columbia

Columbia Law School issued this press release last week regarding its launch (in conjunction with University of Colorado Law School) of a free database of U.S. Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals decisions dating back to the early 1990s.  The school plans to expand the database in the future and says that its AltLaw.org service “has the potential to transform the national landscape of case law resources.”Thanks to Legal Writing Prof Blog for the link.UPDATE (8/30/07):  More on the project at Info/Law.  Thanks to Law School Innovation for the link.
