How do i use multiple alphabetic indexes for formating a "Writ of Certiorari" to SCOTUS?

I helped a friend format his "Writ of Certiorari" to SCOTUS. Not sure if LibreOffice has been used for this before, but i had some difficulties with making the tables of cases and table of statutes and misc authorities comply with the formatting rules. I gave up on figuring it out in a single odt. I had to create multiple copies of the same content and then copy and paste the separate alphabetical index tables into a master copy.

Is there a better way or something i missed?
