Why Is My Court Case on MassCases?

Court Cases Are Public Records and Necessary for Legal Research

In the United States, the decisions of the courts, from the Supreme Court to local courts, are public records. In the past, these cases were only available if you visited a courthouse or subscribed to a fee-based database. Today, the law is becoming more and more accessible for everyone on the Internet. Court decisions can serve as precedent in legal research, and reading them is vital to attorneys and others conducting legal research.
