The best way to locate case law is through the Westlaw Next database. 

Once you have logged in to the database from the library’s homepage using your library username and password, you can search for a case by topic, case name, or case citation. 

You can also limit your search by state or federal court by selecting the “All Federal” link beside the main search bar.  This will allow you to select other jurisdictions to narrow down your case search.
