Open source online research tools

Here's one I just came across called PreCYdent that appears to have good depth and breadth when it comes to federal and state judicial decisions.  Ironically, there happens to be an interview today with the founder of the site courtesy of the Law Librarian Blog

Open source means it's free - and in this legal marketplace, most attorneys are looking for ways to retain clients and keep them happy by delivering services, such as legal research, at a competitive price.  Open source research tools may be the wave of the future.

FYI - PreCYdent also happens to be on Facebook.

I am the scholarship dude.
