Cite case that professor argued?

Postby sundaynightdelite » Tue Apr 27, 2010 6:35 am

I have a case that my professor talked about regarding moulding of verdicts.

Now, he never told us that he successfully argued this Court of Appeals case, but did hint at it, by saying something like, they had an excellent lawyer. My friend actually noticed this, to his credit.

Should I find ANY reason to cite this on my final exam? I mean anything.
Should I even study it any more than other cases?
Should I memorize the holding?
Sing the appellant's attorney's praises?

Any time you are reading something you are not writing = not scoring points = fail
