The November 2004 issue of The Wisconsin Lawyer
has an excellent guide on when it is appropriate to cite to an unpublished opinion. In their article, Citing Unpublished Opinions in Wisconsin State and Federal Tribunals
, authors Mia Sefarbi & Kira Zaporski have compiled a list of relevant court rules and standards and a chart on the mechanics of citation.
Both Sefarbi and Zaporski are members of the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin (LLAW). This article is part of LLAW's continuing campaign to share the expertise of law librarians in publications for Wisconsin's legal practitioners.
