Since 2002, Marc Wites’ The New York Litigation Guide has ordinarily been one of the first reference materials I go to when working on a new case. When drafting complaints (or motions to dismiss) it is an excellent source for quickly determining the elements of a cause of action, and for finding appellate decisions in the district in which the case is located which state and apply those elements. It is also very useful as a starting point when drafting affirmative defenses, particularly in commercial litigation type cases. I would also mention that the affirmative defenses in the guide ordinarily state the statute of limitations for the cause of action in question. So it is also a handy tool for quickly determining statute of limitations periods.

As a very careful (read paranoid) lawyer, I always pulled the cases cited in the Guide to confirm their accuracy and continued validity.
