Thread on "Citing Reportable and Unreportable Decisions of Superior Courts after explosion of Internet Law Reporting Software which give a unique citation reference to each judgement."

1) There was a time when lawyers used to cite SCR a govt publication in arguments.

2/ Then came a period when lawyers begin to cite SCC (And AIR) a private publication in arguments in courts.

Then many other publications came, like Judgement Today, SCALE, and several other weekly and daily reports came and they used to be cited..

Then internet came.
3/ After internet came, many software's like Manupatra etc came.

Lawyers begin to take print outs and the print outs were cited as judgements.

Many times, these print outs used to print name of lawyer who is licensed to use this law software.
