Are Cities Abbreviated in Case Name (Bluebook)?

Postby Pato_09 » Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:34 pm

When citing a case name, are cities abbreviated?

Example: San Francisco - S.F.

1. Not sure why this is in the employment forum
2. Not sure why this needs to be anon.

Yeah, was going to say table 10, but got too lazy to pull out the actual book and didn't want to send him/her on a wild goose chase (as he/she is on already apparently)

Also, I thought it was U.S. o' F'ing 'Murica city?

Don't abbreviate it if it's by itself. Abbreviate it if it's not.

e.g., San Francisco v. United States; S.F. Dep't of Indian Affairs v. U.S. Envt'l Prot. Agency.

This only applies to certain cities. I'll let you look that up yourself.

Sorry, accidental anon.

Duh. It's in the employment forum because OP is an idiot. It's anon because OP is an idiot who is trying to cheat during a law review summer write-on competition and not get caught.

no, it's in the employment forum so OP could post anonymously to cheat on his write-on competition.

True, and I (think I) said so when I reported the thread. I hope the poster gets outed and his/her school's law review finds out about it. Scruples, where are they in this world? And over such a small thing (and an inability to navigate a Bluebook index).

OP goes to Cornell. However, their LR write-on was over in May, so I freely admit to being wrong, with a mea culpa to the OP...unless it was related to their International Law Journal. I still don't get why someone would post anonymously in the employment forum about it, though.

Or he is transferring. Transfer students have a separate write-on competition at many schools.
