Recent ALR Fed 2d Annotations

by Eric Taylor This week's article explores some of the more recent annotations you'll find in the ALR Fed. 2d. As a point of review: The American Law Reports (ALR) series are selective law reporters which are organized into several series (ALR 1st-6th & ALR Fed 1st-2nd). They present leading cases along with annotations representative of a specific legal issue or a particular point of law. The "annotation," in this instance, is comprised of short scholarly article analyzing the issues highlighted in the case being reported. Besides the short article, some of the other editorial features you'll find in a given annotation will include references to: the West digest system, previous ALR annotations, and a table of relevant cases furthering your legal research. The A.L.R. Fed. 2d is one of the newest series in the ALR family of law reporters, and has expanded its coverage to include both Federal and international topics.
