Moved this post to the right forum.
It would save me SOOO much time if there was a way in which to list all the sources that are cited within a particular case on Westlaw or LexisNexis. I've found a way to list the cited cases, but I can't figure out how to list the statutes and/or secondary materials that are mentioned in the case. There has to be a way!
This case is 12 pages long with like 50-something citations - many of which are repeated throughout the text. I'd rather not have to go through and identify them individually and erase the duplicates manually.
Please help me save a ton of time on this BS legal research assignment.

The LexisNexis Office plug-in is SUPPOSED to be able to do this. There is a "Pull Citations" button in the ribbon that tries to pull all citations to cases, documents, statutes etc. It ALMOST works...does a great job for cases but is not so good at figuring out Restatements and treatises. Does ok with statutes, but haven't used it as much on those.
