The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) today announced the creation of a new “Beagle” data base of more than 400 legal briefs dating back to 1995. The data base can be accessd at

“The NAM is active on a broad range of legal issues affecting manufacturers, business and the economy,” said Quentin Riegel, NAM Vice President for Litigation and Deputy General Counsel. “Over the years, we have amassed an impressive track record of effective and influential advocacy for business, and there is growing interest in this case file. With this new system, anyone can now access this data base and quickly find the information sought.”

The system was created by David Kralik, NAM Manager of Internet Programs and Web Content. “You can find the case file you’re looking for by a variety of criteria – name of litigating party, the topic, the jurisdiction, or the year the case was decided,” Kralik said. “By entering more than one criteria, you can more specifically identify the cases you want to view. This system will greatly simplify the legal research function for anyone with an interest in business litigation.”
