This is for my LR assignment. I'm utilizing two cases and I'm supposed to derive the rules from them. If a case states a rule and cites it to another case, do I have to cite both? or just the case I'm using?

I think you're supposed to go one level deep, same as quoting. But i'm not sure if that's only for law review articles or also includes practitioner documents.

You're on law review and you don't know bluebook citations?

He probably means legal (research) and writing.
