When citing to Florida statutes, I can easily find them in Westlaw in West's Annotated. I see in my bluebook that the first choice for Florida statutes is simply Fla. Stat. The second option is to cite to West's. Is it ok to cite in the format of "Fla. Stat. Ann. § 744.331 (West 2007)"? Also, when citing to a district court in Florida, I cannot see any way of showing which district the case was heard in. The convention used by the writer is: In re Guardianship of J.D.S., 864 So.2d 534 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2004) (Fifth District). Do I need to include the district and, if so, what do you think is the best way of showing that?
