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
