dear network specialists
I am working on a couple of legal theories that have been commented by
the US Supreme Court and I would be interested in reading studies of
legal rulings citation networks. I am particularly interested in the
double (or maybe not double) levels of citations between primary and
secondary sources. The theories deal with cases of financial fraud,
and economics is also brought into the picture, which complicates even
more the picture.
I am also interested in hearing from scholars who have tried such
studies how they dealt with the retrieval of data (cases on lexis
Nexis) when such data entailed thousands of references....
Any reference would be most appreciated.
