A group of law schools will help expand an online U.S. Supreme Court database so that it reaches back to the court's first recorded decision in 1792. The schools received an $874,000 National Science Foundation grant to begin the four-year project, which will add 19,675 cases to a database that now extends from the Court's 1953 term through 2008. The group will post 4,400 cases by next summer and add more in installments each year.
