I like cases with lots of big, color photos. Anyone scan pictures and put them in your brief? I hear judges like pictures.

Fair enough. When will the illustrated version of The Perfect Plea be published?

I'm ready to do it if I think it will help me. Haven't had the right case yet since I've had the tools necessary.

Why go half way? Insert PowerPoint shows too-with music. They would be a welcome relief from some of written briefs.

Yeah, a brief with embedded powerpoint slides and maybe your DWI video or video confession. That would be cool. I don't know if my local court of appeals is ready for that. What might work better is links in a brief to media served on the internet.

Can we just skip the writing and simply post our response on YouTube, a la a the opening statement from My Cousin Vinny?

That's the best idea yet.

Given the impossibility of getting actual oral argument granted, YouTube is sounding mighty good.

I vote for Marisa Tomie to play the State role on any video version. Her lines in My Cousin Vinny were delieverd in awesome style.

Oh, and JB, I think I prefer Garamond. It gives your brief just that extra flair.


That's an interesting point. I'm more of a Palatino man myself, but I always crank up the point size for tired judicial eyes.

Well, I often refer to my biological clock in responses.

But that's just me.

When that actually works for you, David, let me know!

Well, I never said it worked (or even that it would be a wonderful world if it did).

But hers was a funny line delivered well.
