Gladly, as long as you explain how to short form cite a Supreme Court case over an Appellate. Let's say I cite the Supreme Court one first, then the Appellate. Then I short form. Would it be fine to just indicate the reporter, a la Jimmy, 435 N.E.2d at 243?
I am confused as to why you are citing the CoA decision instead of the SCOTUS decision, but perhaps I am misunderstanding what you mean by "over an." Also, in general, you should use the official reporter, not the regional reporter.
Congrats on finishing, Wally.
ETA: Otherwise, your short form is fine.
