When giving direct quotations from an individual as actual quotes, does one use the Konjunktiv or the indicative form of verbs. For example, (in a situation where the judge has decided (and believes) that a case is inadmissible) would it be:
"Diese Rechtssache ist unzulässig" sagte der Richter
"Diese Rechtssache sei unzulässig" sagte der Richter
I know that if I was repeating information that the judge said, but not as a direct quote, one would use Konjunktiv ("Der Richter sagte, diese Rechtssache sei unzulässig."), but if it is actually a quote, should one use the indicative instead?
