Lawyers setting up a new bankruptcy practice often want to know which of the legal research giants they should use. Doing my research this morning for a presentation on the means test I’m giving to other lawyers, I needed case authority on whether taxes were a consumer debt for purposes of Section 707(b).
My search on Lexis came up empty. Yet I’ve understood for years that taxes are not consumer debts. Which judge says so? I resorted to Google, and bingo (not Bing!), Google found me a case on the subject, by one of my local judges, no less!
Think outside the box when looking for legal information. Maybe Google has indexed all the world’s information.
