legal research in the basement

Last week, the ABA eReport asked subscribers to submit accounts of ways their legal research strategies helped them achieve success. The winning entry, from Baltimore, described an attorney’s efforts to locate legislative history for a Maryland statute. Maryland does not publish legislative history. The attorney  found his answer by going through forty years’ worth of committee reports in the basement of the Maryland legislature. That's what I call "digging for an answer"!
