It begins with the names of the parties, the date of the hearing and the names of the judge or judges, and, usually, the court. Then follow catchwords, which are indexing terms and the headnote, which is a summary of the facts and the judgment by the advocate reporting the case. The judgment sometimes begins several pages after the beginning of the report.
