state trial court decisions on Westlaw

As if your 1L's weren't confused enough, Westlaw is starting to make state trial court decisions available.  It's already covering some 25 states.  Law librarian blogger Joe Hodniecki does a valiant job of explaining the potential benefits for practitioners.  Those of us who teach LRW to 1L's should expect to see more trial court decisions cited in our students memos and briefs, and yet another teachable moment afoot.
