The court uses CiteLinks, a program that scans documents for citations (when properly
cited according to The Bluebook
) and creates hyperlinks for court employees to Westlaw, Lexis, or other research providers. The program also hyperlinks contemporaneously filed attachments and previously filed documents in CM/ECF when they are properly described during filing (click here
for instructions). Although it is not necessary to manually add hyperlinks to documents, CiteLinks will not alter/modify/change hyperlinks already provided by attorneys.
