Court Cases on the Web

Finding court cases using an Advanced Google Search:

Many federal and state court cases can be found full-text online. However, if you don't know which court(s) a case was tried, it can be difficult to find the case. So try the following Advanced Google search:

Apple and Samsung

The "" at the end of the search tells Google to only return government websites. This limiter is also helpful when searching .edu websites.


Searching within one website

You can also use and advanced search to search one website:

Apple Samsung lawsuit

Also, try just Googling the parties in your lawsuit. You probably will recognize many of the websites.
