By the way, a phrase cannot have a case. A case is a feature of each noun in a sentence. Just to make it easy:
John - nominative
John\'s - genitive
To John - dative
With John - instrumental
In/on/at John - locative (place)
(Oh)John (calling a person) - vocative
In this way you can make out the case just by the meaning, even without knowing the exact gramatical forms of the verbs
