  • How can I find the text of a case when I have the citation? Minnesota

    Citations tell you where a case is published. They typically come in the form of a volume number, reporter abbreviation and a page number, followed by the court and year in parentheses. For example, a typical citation for a Minnesota Supreme Court case in the North Western Reporter 2d Series might look something like this: A.B. v. C.D., 123 N.W.2d 456 (Minn. 19**).

    Generally speaking, unless you have access to a fee-based propriety database such as WESTLAW, LEXIS, LOISLAW, you will need to visit a law library to read the case. For information on visiting our library, see http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/hours.html and for a listing of county law libraries in the state see http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/clldir.pdf. A librarian can help you locate the case. Another option for obtaining a copy would be to use our photocopy service. For more information see http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/se...l#photocopying.

    Opinions of the Minnesota appellate courts starting with May of 1996 can be found on our Web page at: http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/archive/, by name, date or docket number, but not by citation.
