The Wikify Cite Tool puts brackets (like [[this]]) around text that looks like a legal citation, turning the citation into a link to the cited source. Hopefully this tool will save some time and make legal sources more interconnected.

The tool is running at http://thjnk.com/tools/wikify.html, and the source is available below.

Recent updates[edit]

  • 7/8/2010 - Added some more citations; wikifies citation with "§§" (see known issue below)
  • 6/9/2010 - Fixed a bug in short form citations; added older U.S. Reports citations that include the name of the reporter (e.g., 33 U.S. (8 Pet.) 591).
  • 6/8/2010 - Recognizes some short form citations (e.g., 464 U.S., at 434) and pipes the link to the full case citation (e.g., [[464 U.S. 417|464 U.S., at 434]]).

Todo/known issues[edit]

  • If there is a double section symbol ("§§"), it still wikifies the citation. Example: [[Colo. Rev. Stat. §§ 13-21-102]] should result in [[Colo. Rev. Stat. § 13-21-102|Colo. Rev. Stat. §§ 13-21-102]] to preserve textual integrity and still minimize the number of redirects needed. Workaround: uncomment $txt = str_replace("§§","§",$txt); on line 133. I'm not worrying about this too much until there is consensus on how state statute compilations will be structured.
  • Does not fully/properly handle California, New York, and Texas statutes.
  • Does not recognize or link any "Id." citations.
  • Does not link full case name, only citation.
  • Much state law is still untested.
  • Does not recognize non-standard (or no longer standard) citation formats
