Now with added search

Just a quick post to say that I've finally gotten around to adding a Google site search function to Family Lore Case Digest. This should hopefully make the Digest more useful, by allowing users to do a full Google search for any term that may occur in the heading or summary of any case in the Digest (which should give much better results than a basic search). By unticking 'only search Family Lore Case Digest' users can also search the whole of Google, from within the Digest.

Hopefully now it will be easier to find that elusive case you've been looking for!

The Digest presently includes links to some 841 family law cases, including every (freely) reported case since 2008, of which I am aware.


  1. Absolutely brilliant John.
    Whenever I'm looking for a case to highlight on my own blog, I always come to your site first for the link. You are providing a first class service for lawyers and non lawyers alike, entirely free of charge and you are doing a great job.
    Best wishes

    1. Many thanks for that, Marilyn. It's nice to know that my efforts are appreciated - I sometimes wonder!

    Another excellent addition to the useful resources on this site. I used it this morning to find a ruling from last year on case management in intractable disputes, having lost the neutral citation number. I was able to access it in minutes.
    I'm not sure why more do not use this site; it seems to me to be the best kept secret in the legal blogging world.
    Thanks for the effort put in.
