Public records are a wealth of information about clients, opponents, and other parties related to cases. They can unearth information about properties and corporations that can be helpful in building a case and creating a litigation strategy. United States researchers have some of the most extensive access to this sort of information. The Legal Skills Prof blog highlighted a story from Law Technology News on TLO, an online service that has reports starting at US$1. If you are doing public records research and the free services aren’t getting you anywhere, this looks like an excellent option.
