ANSWER: Neal v Department of Corrections

answer: 

If you are near a large academic library, you can possibly get on-site access to legal resources such as Lexis Academic, which gets 8 hits for the case search: Neal v Department of Corrections. Lexis would link you to related cases and cited ones, so you could spend dozens of hours reading these.

If you are near a large public library, you could at least search major newspapers, in subscription databases such as Proquest Newspapers or Newspaper Source, to see what they have on this case. But you might want to first look in the Michigan Court of Appeals database. Searching "Party Name": neal tracy gets a listing for Docket# 281099. When you click on the hot-linked 281099, it gives a summary of actions on the case, including a note near the top: "Status: Open Remarks: trial set for 1-14-08"

In the Fielded Search Opinions, the Party search: neal tracy gets 2 hits:
