Oscola is good and approaches the problem by maintaining a bibtex
database of cases. I maintain a plain text file of my cases and retrieve
them with a custom built function. I'm not sure that the resulting
markup in the manuscript is much more readable with Oscola, but I need
to look into it further.

Thanks for the tip.
