I have a problem to understand what you are asking for

Cases: Linguistics
a. In traditional gramhttps://forum.thefreedictionary.com/editors/yafEditor/bold.gifmar, a distinct form of a noun, pronoun, or modifier that is used to express one or more particular syntactic relationships to other words in a sentence.
b. Case In some varieties of generative grammar, the thematic or semantic role of a noun phrase as represented abstractly but not necessarily indicated overtly in surface structure. In such frameworks, nouns in English have Case even in the absence of inflectional case endings.

[purloined from thefreedictionary.com's page on the meaning of case ]

French like English does not have case as a linguistic feature. Even the remains of the genitive in English is entirely expressed with preposition Example:
the boy's toys
is translated as
les jouets du garçon
