When looking for a case by party name, one important piece of information is the jurisdiction of the court that heard the case. Knowing whether the case is a state case (and the state that heard it) or a federal case, will help you decide which Digest to use in your research.
Digests essentially serve as indices for different reporter sets. Each set of Digests has a table that lists cases by party name, called the Case Name Table. Both the plaintiff's and the defendant's names are indexed in the table, so you can search by either party. If the case is recent, you will want to be sure to check the pocket part for the volume you are using and any cumulative supplements that are available. At Tarlton, all federal and state digests are located in Tarlton's main second floor reading room.
