General News

Don’t forget the importance of legal research—a June 7 article by Robert Ambrogi on the LawSites blog reports that in a recent survey by Casetext, federal and state court judges indicated that lawyers’ incomplete research impacts case outcomes.  All the judges surveyed indicated that they have seen attorneys miss relevant cases, and two-thirds of those surveyed indicated that this has “materially impacted” the outcome of the case. (See the librarian for the full-text of this article.)
