Quick Citation Question

Postby AgentSCo » Sun Mar 06, 2011 11:07 pm

In Case X, the court held that since the plaintiff suffered "several fractures in his forearm," the defendant was guilty. Citation to Case X. Therefore, since the plaintiff in our case did not suffer "several fractures in his forearm," our client is unlikely to be found guilty.

In this instance, would I need citation after the second sentence? If not, would the rule be different if there were one or more intervening pinpoint cites to different cases and/or pages? I couldn't find a Bluebook rule on this, although I was probably looking in the wrong spot. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

In a word, No.

In another word, No.

Hope that helps.
