To cite a court case in APA style, you can use the APA Style official website.
From this website, the three basic elements for an APA Style reference for most court decisions are:
1. Name of the case: Name v. Name
2. Source reporting the decision: Volume Source Page
3. Court and date of the decision: (Court Date)
To find more information on citing court cases, view the APA Style blog (see the 'cite a court case section').
To cite a court case in MLA style, the reference in the works cited list should follow the below format:
[Plaintiff] v. [Defendant]. [U.S. Reports Citation]. [Original Page Numbers, if Available]. [Name of the Court]. [Year of the Decision]. [Reprint Information]. Print.
Additional information on citations are available at the library's 'Writing and Citing LibGuide' (access via the library on Blackboard, use the 'Research/Explore' link and choose 'LibGuides' from the menu).
