looks really weird when you have

The court held that Plantiff is a fucking nigger. White v. Coon, 123 F.3d

456 (1969). Blah blah blah

is it cr to put non-breaking spaces in the report citation?

The example you give doesn't look like a problem to me. It would be worse if the (1969) were orphaned.

But, sure, use non-breaking spaces to clean things up as needed.

Some litigation prole tells:

LEXIS reporter citations

Firm logo watermarks on briefs

Size 12 Times New Roman font in a Circuit Court of Appeals paper

Section symbols split from their accompanying section number

There's nothing wrong with Lexis, but it's still prole. Would the SG's office use a Lexis cite?

As for an example of the tacky logo prole-law trend, see the James Damore complaint:

I think he means having it break across lines, since only the most oafishly-cocked of prole shitlawyers would literally put the fucking section symbol right up next to the number like its a fucking dollar sign.
