Bluebook Rule 18.1.1 Cases

The only time you would cite to a case on Westlaw or LexisNexis (with its WL or LEXIS number) is when it is an unreported or pending case.  Thus, if you find a reported case on Westlaw or LexisNexis, cite to the regional reporter, if a state case; cite to the official reporter from Table 1 for federal cases. See also Rule 10.8.1.
