  1. @adjusterjack Thank you so much! You have been very helpful and I appreciate your time!
  2. Hello, I am a student taking a mass media law class and we are supposed to use this site for research but I'm not having much luck. We were given a case to research: Children's Television v. FCC, 852 F.2d 1332,1338-40 (D.C.Cir.1988), but when I search that name in this site I can't find anything. Is there a way to find past cases and read them? Is it in a different search engine than the search bar on the top of the site? I found caselaw.findlaw.com, but even that one needs you to know what Court the case was at, and the legal topic and the industry and the docket number, etc and I just have no idea what any of that is or how to figure it out from those numbers in the case name. We were also given a case citation: Supreme Court of the United States, 1974 418 U.S. 241, 94 S.Ct. 2831, 41 L.Ed.2d 730, 1 Med.L.Rptr. 1898. I found this case: MIAMI HERALD PUBLISHING CO. v. TORNILLO, 418 U.S. 241 (1974) which seems to mostly match, but even looking through that case I can't find that exact citation with all of those numbers at the end anywhere to know for sure. I feel pretty dumb asking these questions but if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it!
