Do I need to attach the physical reference to my motion? i'm trying to use a reference in my argument, but do I actually need the documents with me or is it ok that I just post the reference of where I got it?

My name is Lucy and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

When the reference is only a a Westlaw reference, and it's not published in one of the reporters, a copy of the case should be attached to the motion. The judge and the opposing side each get a copy. This is primarily because not everyone uses Westlaw, and the unreported cases are not the same on each of the services that are used.

If you have any questions or concerns about what I've written, please reply so that I may address them. It's important to me that you are 100% satisfied with the service I provide. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so that I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
