Case Citation in Memo

Postby RehtaehR » Thu Oct 22, 2015 2:04 pm

Hey, this may be the wrong forum, but hopefully I can get some help.

When citing a case in the text of a memo, is the name underlined?
When citing a case in a citation, is the name underlined? (A citation in the text, not a footnote)

Rule 10 in the BlueBook has led me to believe that the name is underlined in the text, but in normal Roman font in a citation.

My professor said to underline Id., so to be consistent I need to underline rather than italicize, but I may be underlining too much.
Is the case name ALWAYS underlined (or italicized) in a memo no matter where it appears?

Please help. Thank you.
