What website provides free case law history?

I need to find a case in 1960 or 1970. Does anyone know a website that provide free case laws, court rulings, and opinions for my research? I tried www.findlaw, but this website can not go further than 2000 case laws, and provide only recent cases. Please help me find a website that provides history case in 1960 or 1970 for free.

www.austlii.edu.au

and from there there’s links to the american version and Worldlii

or u can google and whatever free database has it – it’ll show up or even a textbook extract which has it – ull be surprised

    I’ve used findlaw to get cases from over a hundred years ago. They usually established stare decisis though. Try http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/index.html . I was told to also try lawcrawler in college but never found it of much assistance.

    You will not likely find any free online databases that go back that far. As you get further away from mainstream recent cases, you have to go closer to the source (the specific court system website) for free online information. Even then most don’t have their online archives updated with pre-mid-90’s cases. In the unlikely event there are any websites for this, I would like to know that also.
