How do I cite a court case in APA style?
First, make sure that your instructor wants you to cite court cases in APA style. Paralegal courses at GEN schools generally use the Bluebook citation style as described in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
However, if you've determined that you need to use APA style, you'll need this information:
Name v. Name, Volume Source Page (Court Date).
If you found the case online, you'll need to add the online information as well. Here's an example:
Lessard v. Schmidt, 349 F. Supp. 1078 (E.D. Wis. 1972). Retrieved May 1, 2008, from http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/archive/supct/9807/c297168.htm
