Legal Case Ontology OWL file and Case Graphic

In conjunction with the paper by Rinke Hoekstra and I (as previously noted on this blog), we are making the ontology and a graphic of Popov v. Hayashi available:

Legal Case Ontology v9

This is the OWL file. It was developed using Protege version 4, a knowledge acquisition and editing tool.

As we have not previously made this a publicly available ontology, consider it a beta release. Comments very welcome.

The graphic is the ontological representation of Popov v. Hayashi; it is a pdf file.
