Q. Do I cite the Supreme Court Justice's name in a U. S. Supreme Court decision?

The citation doesn't need to include the name of the Supreme Court justice who actually wrote the official opinion of the court in the citation. The only time a specific Supreme Court justice needs to be noted in a citation is if that individual wrote a dissenting opinion or concurring opinion, agreeing with an official opinion, yet distinct from the official opinion.
