How do I find if/how a particular jurisdiction has adopted or implemented a Restatement of the law?
For example, Restatement (2nd) of Torts §912 goes on at some length about standards that apply to claiming damages for tortious conduct. I want to know what is the current case law concerning that in New York. I have seen some courts in some states explicitly adopt provisions in the Restatements, but in this example a web search doesn't turn up anything particular to New York.
(I have seen suggestions that Lexis or WestLaw are good for this, but it appears that the only way to access those is to either subscribe, which they only allow lawyers to do, or to find a library that subscribes. Right now I'm in a rural area and I've called every courthouse and library within a day's ride and none offer access.)
