Tomorrow, April 1, 2014, the Court’s amendments to Rule 171 and Rule 10 will go effective. Through these amendments, the Court has required that all pleadings, papers, letters and other submissions be typed in 14 point font, Times New Roman, to increase their readability. The amendments additionally require that all pleadings be double-spaced (with the exception of quotations and footnotes), and have margins of not less than 1 inch on all sides. In addition, amended Rule 171 sets a limitation on opening or answering briefs at 14,000 words, and limits reply briefs to 8,000 words.
