Hi, I know some of our members have acces to case law and wonder if you could search for any case law regarding Hestair Dennis who manufacture fire engines and bin lorries.  Thanks.sg

Firesafety101, if you would like somone to search databases you might need to provide more meaningful context to the reason for the search.

To search for yourself theer is teh above mentioned BAILii (British and Irish Legal Information Institute) which provides a free database of subject cases. Similarly there are other databases for other jurisdictions which are free:

CommonLii Commonwealth Legal Information Institute http://www.commonlii.org/

LII Legal Information Institute (US) https://www.law.cornell.edu/

AustLII Australian Legal Information Institute http://www.austlii.edu.au/

Jade - Australian free or subscription database https://jade.io/t/home

The list goes on. While informative, these free databases are not the easiest to search. Also while differing jurisdictions can be informative, depending on legislative similarities courts may find them Persuasive or not, and will only have a binding tendancy if it is a higher or equal court in the same country/system (Some countries have both legislative judiciary and religeous judicial systems. Sometimes the UK can be binding on Australia, other times not).
