    The Madoff Ponzi is really just starting; I'm thinking you want something w/finality to it.

    This is a good one that I really never agreed with, but that's law:
    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1287038/posts

    It's billed as perhaps the "most famous business lawsuit ever". The infamous McD's hot coffee incident.

    This site may prove useful: http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/sup...reme_court.cfm

    Another famous case could be any that resulted in changing the way Napster did business; ie: resale of copy protected material (music/songs) and how it was given away (free i-net downloads).

    Let us know what you decide and how your research comes out; who knows, you may teach us all something.

    I guess i shoulda worded it differently, I got assigned a case and i have to be part of a "pretend jury" on two other cases. The case i got(cant remember the name of it off the top of my head) is where mcdonalds got sued for getting people fat..my question was more of what are some good resources that would be recommended when searching law cases?

    Are you asking for help on which three cases to study? Or how to get info on three particular cases? If the latter, post up the cases and I can get you whatever is available on Westlaw.

    If the former, I'd troll various websites to see what cases have lots of (credible) information available.

    Edit - you wrote that last reply right when I was doing mine.

    Give me the cite to the case and I can pull the info off Westlaw, including briefing by the attorneys. It will give you everything available on that particular case.

    Also, Lexis-Nexis has a free portion of their website. Check out the following:
