When someone asks you for the Wagon Mound (1) Case, just where do you look? At the BC Courthouse Library Society’s Popular Case Name Table, of course!
Someone asked me to get a copy of the Wagon Mound 1 case. That was all they had for me. No proper case name. No citation. “Funny name for a case,” I thought, after I had them repeat it to me about three times. So I did a Google search and I stumbled upon this BC resource that lists the popular names of cases and their corresponding proper names and citations, including parallel citations. VERY COOL! It’s good to give the whole table a quick skim just to get some sense of what’s there. Having done this myself, I learned that there were many times this would have been handy.
My thanks to the BC Courthouse Library Society!
