National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)


While at the reference desk this week a seasoned attorney came up and was wondering whether we have access to the reports and decision of the National Labor Relations Board. Actually, we have a subscription through the BNA databases but in this case it might be more convenient for anyone who doesn't have that access to go to the official government website.   
The NLRB website offers a wide variety of rules and regulations, guides, and manuals in English as well as in Spanish. In addition its research section allows access to legal-related documents, specifically NLRB Board decisions and memos, the weekly summary of NLRB cases, and AppellateCourt briefs and motions filed by the NLRB General Counsel.  
Furthermore one can find the National Labor Relations Act, manuals written for legal and non-legal audiences which provide a wealth of material useful for understanding and navigating NLRB cases as well as the General Counsel memos.

Citing to Vernon's Texas Codes Annotated: Finding Accurate Publication Dates (without touching a book)

When citing to a current statute, both the Bluebook (rule 12.3.2) and Greenbook (rule 10.1.1) require a  practitioner to provide the publication date of the bound volume in which the cited code section appears. For example, let's cite to the codified statute section that prohibits Texans from hunting or selling bats, living or dead. Note, however, you may remove or hunt a bat that is inside or on a building occupied by people. The statute is silent as to Batman, who for his own safety, best stay in Gotham City.
This section of the Texas Parks and Wildlife code is 63.101. "Protection of Bats." After checking the pocket part and finding no updates in the supplement, my citation will be:
Tex. Parks & Wild. Code Ann. § 63.101 (West ___ ). When I look at the statute in my bound volume of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code, I can clearly see that the volume's publication date is 2002. But, when I find the same citation on Westlaw or LexisNexis, all I can see is that the …
