  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - However, the regex should be \d{2}-\d{2,}, as the Supreme Court page itself says the second number can be 2, 3 or 4 digits. Even Example 6 above for Roe V Wade is 2+2. Also, we should rename this as "United States Supreme Court docket number" and/or "U.S. Supreme Court docket number." -- Fuzheado (talk) 16:18, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
    • I have fixed the regex - sorry, typo. I agree that the actual property should have the country in the name. --DannyS712 (talk) 16:20, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
