    You cannot properly cite that case without knowing the reporter numbers...this is the volume of book it is held in.

    Example. Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335, 343, 83 S.Ct. 792, 796, 9 L.Ed.2d 799 (1963).

    That is a proper cite, except the title Gideon v. Wainwright should be in italics or underlined depending on what type of document it is used in. The 343 and 796 cites to the specific page in the reporter of whatever you are qouting. If you just want to refer the case you should begin the cite with See in italics followed by a comma. In this case there are three reporters (U.S. S.CT. L.Ed. 2d.) They are listed from most common to least common.

    Are you looking for Gideon v. Wainright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963)?

    NOTE TO STRANGEDAZE: What kind of legal document are you using that long citation for???? All you need is the short one listed above. It's simply not necessary to list every lower court's decision.

    I'm not sure if this is what you are asking but if you are going for the short hand I'd say

    IRS Commissioner v. Wainwright
