Citing court cases

Postby alixcat » Sat May 04, 2019 7:42 am

I was trying to cite court cases for a paper. Nothing defines jurisdiction, legislation, or legal, so I had to do it with something else. This was tested in biblatex-chicago with notes-bibliography style and is the right format regardless of whether it's in a footnote or the bibliography. If used with an author-date format, switching author and title would probably work. I used year instead of date because this way it doesn't put empty parenthesis at the end like it does for date. I hope someone else finds this helpful and doesn't have to spend a couple hours searching like I did.

  1. @book{Bowers_Hardwick,
  2. author = {},
  3. title = {\textup{Bowers v. Hardwick, 478 U.S. 186 (1986)}},
  4. year = {}
  5. }

Hello there,

I suggest to you seven citing court decisions in apa style you can check this :-

1. Parts of the Reference.
2. Name of the Case.
3. Reporting the Decision.
4. Court. Omit the name of the Supreme Court and its jurisdiction in references to the Supreme Court
Reporter (S. Ct.) and United States Reports (U.S.).
5. Date. For the date, use the year that the case was decided.
6. Reference Examples.
7. Text Citation Example.
