PreCYdent Search Engine No Longer Available

Not sure how many of you followed the development of this free online legal research service.  Apparently it has lost it's funding and as a result is no longer able to continue.

See this post on the Law Librarian Blog for more information and links to some background information including Joe Hodniki's great interview with Thomas A. Smith.  Smith was the force behind PreCYdent which was based on his citation frequency data research (see Web of Law).
