Usage[edit]

Creates a reference to a Federal Reporter case, providing a link to the series page and the volume page.

The first three parameters are "Series" (from 1 to 3), "Volume" and "Case" numbers.

{{Federal reporter|Series|Volume|Case}}

Optional named parameters:

  • "link": a direct link to the article of the case, eg "Stern Electronics Inc v. Kaufman". If this not given, a link will be generates to openjurist.org.
Therefore you can force a link to openjurist by just omitting the link parameter. This may be useful in the tile block of the page itself.
  • "case2": a second case number in the same volume and series
  • "link2": a direct link to the second case (only works if a second case number is given). A link will be generated to openjurist if not given.
