Fastcase online case and statute database

[This was the first post written on, the predecessor site to Lawyerist.]

I just learned about the Fastcase online law library. The Oklahoma Bar Association apparently offers it to all its members, and it looks to me like just the kind of streamlined, simplified case law databse I have been looking for.

I am trying to get more information about how it may differ from Westlaw/Lexis, but I have high hopes that this could be a viable alternative for a small practitioner who primarily needs access to case law (like me).
