when you refer to a citation that refers another citation

Postby myung76 » Thu Feb 28, 2013 3:02 pm

hey guys,

it slipped my mind and i cant think of it at all:

what do you call it (or do) when you are citing to a citation that cites another citation?

IE you are using case A. but the stated proposiition in case A is citing from case B.

would be so appreciated! thanks!

Bluebook Rule 10.6.2. If you are citing a case citing another case, say Abe v. Zoe (quoting Bob v. Bill), then you would cite the title/vol.# /reporter /first page of case/page where you're citing/(court [if unclear] and year) (quoting insert full case citation). Only one level of recursion is necessary. You would never have to say Abe v. Zoe (quoting Bob v. Bill) (quoting Tom v. Jill).

It's called a citing or quoting parenthetical.
