The most important things to know about a case, besides what actually happens in the case, are the case’s name and citation. While a case citation isn’t available until published in a legal reporter, and a case isn’t final for 15 days, that doesn’t mean that a case isn’t useful. An opinion, pre-finality and reporting, can either clarify a well-established principle, differentiate scenarios, or show the erosion of a previously established legal principle and provides the case law upon which the courts rely to explain the rationale behind the interpretation.
