New Google Legal Serach

Postby skybox » Sun Nov 22, 2009 3:55 pm

Google released this week a new search engine that will provide full text legal opinions from U.S. federal and state district, appellate and supreme courts using Google Scholar. What a great service and its free. Here is a link explaining how to use it:

Wow! Thank you for posting this Legal search! Good job. Now if we could put more hours in the day and less smoke in the hours we could stop this bad dream.

Skybox how is your smoke this month?

Hi Mary,

Better than the past that's for sure. I'm currently working on providing comments to Pennsylvania’s Environment Quality Board as they move toward regulating OWBs. In my opinion this is a significant undertaking and will help other states move forward if successful. As we all know the opposition from those who have invested in OWBs always seems to resonate louder with policy makers when they show at public meeting and accuse the government of taking their heat source. If our concerns about air contaminants are not articulated concurrently, and in sufficient numbers, it will be difficult for the environmental board not to capitulate to political pressures. As it stands now there are two legislators from rural communities speaking out loudly against state regulations.
