Introduced just before the War, these Fashiondolsproduced by Latexture Products were intended tooffer young girls the means to practice sewing andlearn to produce their own fashion designs, withouthaving to use adult size patterns.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of thesefashion dolls was that matching patterns could bepurchased from Simplicity in adult sizes as well, somothers and daughters could sit side by side and sewthe same dress, fit their respective mannequins, orcrochet miniature hats. The Miniature Fashion SewingBook is exceedingly scarce and instructions called forthe same construction used in adult sewing: intricateshaping with darts and tucks, side placket openings,facings and lapels, with no simplifying of instructionsfor young hands.
Typically these kits were purchasedwith just the doll and possibly the dress form, and acouple sewing kit pieces, but more elaborate ones likethis would have extra trays for holding fashionscompleted, extra supplies, and lots of room foradditional patterns. These MiniatureFashion Mannequins continued to be heavilymarketed into the early s, and paved the way forfuture adult fashion dolls such as Barbie, and thosesimilar which followed.

I hope you will enjoy The Indigo Book: A Manual of Legal Citation and that you will join me in extending my congratulations to Professor Sprigman and his students on the excellent job they have performed in re-coding those rules.

Little Blue Books (E. Haldeman-Julius Company) - Book Series List: Titles Arranged by Subject
Most American lawyers cite these materials only rarely, and providing citation rules for the enormous number of international jurisdictions is part of what makes The Bluebook as unwieldy as it has become. The Indigo Book offers a couple of important advantages to users, compared with The Bluebook. Free in two different ways that are equally important. First, The Indigo Book is given to you free of charge.
Considering that the Uniform System of Citation has become a basic piece of infrastructure for the American system of justice, it is vital that pro se litigants, prisoners, and others seeking justice but who lack resources are given effective access to the system lawyers use to cite to the law. Second, and perhaps even more importantly, The Indigo Book is free of the restrictions of copyright.
You are free to copy and distribute this work, and—most importantly—to improve on it. This is important, because we want people with a stake in our legal citation system to help make that system simpler and better. So, what sorts of improvement do we hope for? This original edition of The Indigo Book is compatible with the current, 20th edition of The Bluebook. Indeed, in some ways the recent editions of The Bluebook have adopted an unhelpfully over-prescriptive approach to citation that has resulted in needless complexity.
The rules set forth in this booklet should not be considered invariable. Whenever clarity will be served, the citation form should be altered without hesitation; whenever a citation would not amplify the identification of the authority referred to, no citation should be given. That sounds right to us. Can we get back to a more sensible, flexible system of legal citation? The next step is up to you. Take The Indigo Book , use it, enjoy it, improve it—maybe you international lawyers out there will add coverage of foreign and international law?
Then, consistent with the spirit of our project—give your improvements to the world. There are two basic varieties of legal documents. The Uniform System of Citation imposes somewhat different citation rules for each. For reasons that make very little sense, the Uniform System of Citation treats law review articles and standard legal documents differently. If we were designing the system from scratch, we'd scrap this distinction. When we need to refer to law review articles specifically, we'll do that. The typewriter was invented around the s. The first edition of The Bluebook is from Typewriters of that era did not support italics or boldface.
If you wanted to emphasize text, your sole option was to underline. The Bluebook 20th Ed. One might ask why the legal profession chose for itself such an odd and onerous citation system. L Rev. For citation sentences, signals in the same category are listed within a single citation sentence, each one marked off by semicolons; signals in separate categories, however, should be listed in separate citation sentences. For citation clauses, all signals irrespective of category are listed within a single citation clause and separated by semicolons. Follow the order below for citing authorities within a signal.
However, there is one exception: if an authority is more helpful than others cited within a signal, it should be cited first. Although The Bluebook encourages citations to Lexis or Westlaw when appropriate, note that many of the states have adopted public domain or media neutral citation of cases, as shown in Table T3.
The Indigo Book encourages the use of public domain or media neutral citations. When giving a public domain citation, also include a parallel citation to the appropriate regional reporter if possible. Correct: Smith v. Jones Incorrect: Jonathan H. Smith v. Allison T.

For cases with multiple dispositions , include an italicized identifier if useful. In future citations of that case, the identifier can replace the full case name. Example: Liriano v. Hobart Corp. Liraino III , F. If a mandamus action is known by the name of the judge against whom the writ is sought , that name can be indicated in an italicized parenthetical. If a case is known both by the reported name and a distinct short form name, always include the reported name in a full citation.
The short name may be included in italics in a parenthetical. Example: Indus. Petroleum Inst. The Benzene Case , U. Correct: Red Lion Broad. FCC , U. Incorrect: Red Lion Broad. Federal Communications Commission , U. Burdine , once the plaintiff has established a prima facie case, there is a rebuttable presumption of unlawful discrimination. Affairs v. Green , the Supreme Court held that in a disparate treatment case, the plaintiff bears the initial burden of establishing a prima facie case of employment discrimination.
There are multiple ways to incorporate a case citation in the text of an article, brief, or other written work. In the previous example reproduced below , the case name is stated in the text and the rest of the citation is included as a separate sentence. There is no strict rule here, so choose whichever method will be clearer to the reader.
In McDonnell Douglas Corp. Green , U. This is how you decode case citations. The left column shows what your citation should look like. The right column shows what the citation means for someone looking for the case. For page ranges consisting of page numbers or greater, you need only provide the last two digits of the second number in the page range, providing that the preceding digits are identical between the two numbers e. Otherwise, include both numbers in their entirety e.

Cite to the regional reporter for the region in which the court sits, if the opinion appears there. Note: Do NOT include the department or district of intermediate state courts. Swindell , So. See Table T Also, be mindful of spacing. LEXIS and Westlaw cases: Citations to these electronic databases are similar to regular citations, except that they a replace the case code with a docket number and a database code supplied by LEXIS or Westlaw, and b include the full date of the decision in the following parenthetical, not just the year.
To highlight information regarding the weight of the cited authority e. Remember to separate the parentheticals with a space. The United States is a common law system, where court decisions play an important role in defining what the law is.

Note that in the above examples, the relevant explanatory phrases precede the subsequent history. Explanatory parenthetical information about the preceding case should be included before any subsequent history. Example: Lerman v. Horn v. Schmuck , F. Incorrect: United States v. United States , U. However, none of these conventions are absolute.
If there is an explanatory parenthetical or phrase in the preceding citation, it is not incorporated with the use of id. Don't italicize anything in a statute citation. The section symbol s are always followed by a space. Don't worry about the year the statute was passed—the only year that matters is the edition of the code or the publication date of the volume containing the statute. If you can't find the official code, include the name of the publisher in the date parenthetical, preceding the year.
Cite current or uniform rules of evidence or procedure by indicating the abbreviation of the source, followed by the rule number no comma in between. It is unclear whether The Bluebook requires citation to different volumes. In practice, it makes little difference since the section number will direct the reader to the appropriate volume.
Cite the title of the act in full, including year of enactment where it is included in the title. Judge Posner has criticized the long lists of uniform abbreviations mandated by The Bluebook as a contradiction in terms, since a non-obvious abbreviation one you must learn from a predesignated list will likely confuse the reader, and so should not be used at all.
Still, we follow the system of abbreviations The Bluebook requires as a matter of consistency. Include a parenthetical to explain content of rule or regulation where that information would be helpful. Citations to Title 26 of the U. Code, which is where the Internal Revenue Code is codified, take the following form: 26 U. If the regulation is temporary, then begin the citation with Temp. When citing Congressional legislation, you can include in your citation whether it was enacted in the first or second session of Congress. For the names of subcommittees and committees, abbreviate according to the form set out in Table T5 , Table T11 , and Table T For the names of individuals, abbreviate using Table T Perhaps because constitutions are considered Capital-I important, they should never be expressed in the short form except for id.
Unlike cases, court documents may be cited using supra. Colting , F. Example: The U. For completeness sake, we include these rules below, even though most people would probably intuit them. Think of a webpage as the page in your Internet browser Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. Think of a website as a group of webpages that work together. For example, abovethelaw. When a document is available in multiple formats, cite to the format that best preserves the document as it would display if printed.
This will allow citations to specific page numbers for pincites regardless of whether it is being viewed digitally or in print. Sometimes, it is helpful to include extra information to explain the relevance of certain citations. This information goes at the end of your citation but before any citation indicating subsequent history. Explanatory parentheticals may consist of present participles , direct quotations, or short statements. Here is where the block quotation should begin and here is where it should end.
See the indentations on the right and left sides? This is how it should appear in your writing. The reasoning behind this set-up is to offset the lengthy quotations from the rest of the text and to clearly indicate that this is all directly cited material. Plaintiff J. Rowling is the author of the highly acclaimed Harry Potter book series [. Warner Bros. RDR Books , F. Here is where some have noted that The Bluebook rules sometime produce odd results.
The Bluebook makes no exception for quotations of 50 or more words in parentheticals unless used in a footnote in a law review article , meaning that the following footnote is formatted correctly, if bizarrely:. To perhaps a greater extent than even the legal scholars, modern economists assume that property consists of an ad hoc collection of rights in resources. Indeed there is a tendency among economists to use the term property to describe virtually every device—public or private, common-law or regulatory, contractual or governmental, formal or informal—by which divergences between private and social costs or benefits are reduced.

The authoritativeness and care found in the rest of The Bluebook is perhaps not possible when attempting to summarize, for example, the legal system of France in 5 pages. As such, we attempt in this table to direct the reader to a series of other citation guides that are readily available for further guidance. The material in this section was originally prepared by Patrick Durusau.

If those fonts are not available, the CSS style sheet falls back to Georgia, which is present on most computers, and then to the generic serif font. The fonts we use are:. To clearly distinguish our work from other citation manuals, we have forgone the use of the color Royal Blue in favor of Indigo, in solidarity with the ryots of Bengal who were oppressed by the insatiable British demand for blue and the profits that flowed from it, leading to the Nilbridroha Indigo revolt and the beginning of the road that led to independence.
