"In the Emergency Price Control Act of 1942, Congress established a comprehensive system of administrative controls over prices, as a means of checking the inflation that accompanied America's entry into World War II. The Act created a temporary Emergency Court of Appeals, staffed by federal judges from the district courts and courts of appeals, with exclusive jurisdiction to determine the validity of price control regulations."
PLoL, the Public Library of Law, brings together a virtual library of case law, regulatory and other legal information into one searchable database. It provides free access to state Supreme and Appellate Court cases from 1997 to the present.

At the federal level the PLoL offers all Supreme Court cases; all federal circuit court cases from 1950 forward, the US Code, the Code of Federal Regulations and Federal Court Rules as well as additional legal materials. The case law is made available through Fastcase; other resources are linked back to state or federal websites for access and where relevant, links are also provided to subscription-based content hosted by Fastcase. Initial registration is required to view cases. A user guide and tutorials are available to assist researchers.
