Jurisdiction and Authority
You have found a case exactly on point with the issue you are researching and used a citator to make sure it is still good law. In your memo to the court you tell the judge she is required to follow the holding in your case and are feeling pretty confident until the partner reviewing your work says "since when is a New Jersey trial court decision mandatory authority in New York?"
If you don't know how to determine if a case is mandatory or merely persuasive authority in any given jurisdiction, you might want to sign up for this class. (30 minutes).
Advance registration is required. If you register for a session and cannot attend, please remember to cancel your reservation.
