Extra attention to legibility is time well spent
Litigators, I appreciate that motions are often written under deadline pressure that make good typography seem like an unaffordable luxury.
But when is it more important to have your reader’s full attention? You’re asking a judge to order a remedy—or, if you’re opposing, to refrain from ordering that remedy. The issue is important enough to have reached the judge’s desk. The ruling may not be appealable. Shouldn’t you put your best foot forward?
Or you can submit motions that look like they just rolled out of bed.
