Hello,

Thank you for contacting E. H. Butler Library for research assistance.  The easiest way to find court cases is to use Google Scholar.

First, go to scholar.google.com

Simply type ford explorer in the search box (*and* uncheck the "search patents" box underneath), then hit enter or click the search button to run the search.

On the left side, there should be an option to click on "Case Law".  Do that.

Once you have done that, some additional options should appear on the left side, including "Select courts..."  Go ahead and click on "Select courts..."

To clear all of the check marks on the next page, simply click "Clear all" for both State and Federal courts.  Then, after unchecking everything, simply click the one box for "Supreme Court". Then scroll down and click the blue "Done" button to run your modified search.

The results showing on the page will contain the key words "ford explorer" and should only be Supreme Court cases.

Of course, you may modify these searches and filters to your own personal keywords and research needs.

Please ask a librarian if you need any other assistance.  Thank you,

Mr. Eugene Harvey
