how do you find the pincite of a house report?

Postby Watermelon Man » Sat Sep 29, 2012 11:18 am

i see 2 sets of green numbers with *'s.

*5000 and *50.

I know the *5000 #s are pincites to the reprinted version. Is the *55 the pincite for the house report?

Are you looking at Westlaw/Nexis or something? That's ghetto. Go find the actual report as printed by the GPO. Your library hopefully has access to Archive of Americana.

One number generally corresponds to the official publisher, and the other to whatever other publisher is cited. You can generally just check the page numbers against the "cite as" citation given at the top of the document to see which number corresponds to which. ie something reads "cite as 117 Wash.App. 483, 120 P.3d 172", the numbers given on the first page will look like *483**172, and the second page *484**173. First number given corresponds to the first publisher, and the second to the second.
