I think the best way to deal with those requests is to screen the request. Ask about things like federal v. state, procedural posture, timeframe, etc. If the attorney cannot tell you any of this, then there is a good chance that he or she has no idea that such a case does not exist and makes it easier for you to come back and say that it does not exist.

Shit like that is my nightmare and 1 of the many reasons I am very happy to be a transactional lawyer and almost never do caselaw research.

i never took tax, and i'm doing mostly (IP) transactional work right now.  they'll usually bring in tax specialists if it's a significant part of a deal, so it hasn't been an issue.

Tax sucked. Worst grade I got in law school. Killed my GPA. Do not want.
