Legal Cases: "Abbreviated Case Name" Displayed Despite Empty Reference Field

Hey everbody,

 

I have a problem citing legal cases. Can anybody help?

 

For cases used multiple times I have filled in the field "Abbreviated Case Name" of my reference. For cases I will only use once this field remains empty.

 

Problem with single use cases: EndNote will automatically insert the full "Case Name" again in brackets as "Abbreviated Case Name". I just want Endnote to skip this field.

 

Example:

Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky v. Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State (Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky v. Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State), U.S. Supreme Court, 566 U.S. 189 (2012)

 

My current output format:

 

Case

Case Name|*(Abbreviated Case Name)|,*Court|,*Judge|,*Date Decided|,*Reporter Volume|*Reporter|*First Page|*(Year Decided)|,*S. Cited*Pages

 

Case - Short form

Abbreviated Case Name, Reporter Volume|*Reporter*First Page|*(Year Decided)|,*S.*Cited Pages

 

(* = Link Adjecent)

 

 

Cheers - I will be very grateful for any hint!
