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. }
