REFERENCES IN THIS WORK.
L. is affixed to all cases from the U. S. Reports, and refers to the so-called Lawyer's Edition of the U. S. Reports, the figures indicating the book and page of that edition.
F. C. appended to a citation from the regular reports of F. C. the U. S. Circuit and District Courts, refers to the series of reprints "Federal Cases," and gives, as the publishers of that series do, the number of the case in that series.
Fed. Cas. is used when a case contained in the Fed. Cas. series of Federal Cases is not reported in the regular series of U. S., C. C., and D. C. Reports, and the citation of such cases is to the volume and page of Fed. Cas., not to the number of the case.
L. R. A.
Fed. or Fed. Rep. refers to the well-known Federal Reporter.
Lawyers who have, and those who are in the habit of using, the American Series of Selected and Annotated Cases do not need to be told Am. St. Rep. that the American Decisions, American Reports,
and American State Reports are represented by the abbreviations Am. Dec., Am. Rep., and Am. St. Rep.
Those who have the Lawyers' Reports Annotated will readily recognize the abbreviation L. R. A.
The Pennsylvania State Reports and the New Jersey Reports, both law and equity, are designated by the number of the series, not by the names of the reporters, while the North Carolina Reports are cited under the reporters' names and numbers, in spite of the rule recently adopted by the Supreme Court of that State, because we know of no set in existence which is numbered from 1 to 123 of N. C. Reports.
The reporters of the National Reporter System are designated as Atl., Atlantic; Pac., Pacific; N. E., North Eastern; N. W., North Western; So., Southern; S. E., South Eastern; S. W., South Western; and S. Ct., Supreme Court Reporter.
We think that in all other respects our abbreviations will be clear and familiar to all who are accustomed to the use of law reports.
