Citation question
« on: March 23, 2002, 10:08:42 AM »
I'm confused about citation format and I can't find an answer in the Blue Book or ALWD.  I hope someone out there can help.

Here's the gist of it:   "Case A" has a quotation that is referenced in numerous future cases.  I want to cite the most recent case on point because the facts are similar to my case- call it "case C."  Case C cites "case B quoting case A".  

Do I need to find a way to cite back to Case A or can  I just cite case C quoting case B?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.  Thanks.
