Accessing and reading the opinion is a great place to being answering this question. FastCase is a database containing full text court opinions, statutes, regulations and other legal resources that is searchable. It can be accessed through the Rasmussen College Online Library.
Fastcase defaults to the "Quick Caselaw Search" for all jurisdictions. Simply type:
Hall v. Hilbun
in the textbox at the top of the page and click Search.
The next page will display a list of search results listed in relevance order. Notice that there are two Hall v. Hilbun cases listed--one of which has a red flag. The red flag indicates that other courts have taken an opposing view of this opinion (negative treatment). However, this is the opinion to read. The second is an appeal that was denied by the higher court.
