Legal cases can be found online.
If you are looking for a specific case in which you have some information, Google Scholar is the best option for finding the full case. You can search by case number or using the names of the defendant and/or plaintiff.
Your case should appear in the first few results.
If you are looking for potential cases related to a topic of interest, you will need to find more information about it first. Google Scholar can at times provide cases when you search using keywords, but it is more efficient to have a case in mind.
