Vendor-neutral citation actually gets somewhere

The glacial movement toward vendor-neutral citation of judicial opinions took a second step forward recently, with Illinois joining Arkansas in requiring citation to “public domain citations” rather than to the official state case reporter (which will go out of print).  Two states down, 48 states plus D.C., the Feds and the territories to go.  I added this development to the “Universal Citation” section of the Citations entry.  [Hey – there’s more to this story, be sure to read the Comments on this one.]
