Good piece, Travis. The case chronology is a waste of time in most cases, although sometimes it is necessary to let the court know the chronology because it supports your case (e.g., you've filed umpteen motions to compel and now you are seeking sanctions).

You know what's important that nobody really ponders in motion practice - typography. www.typographyforlawyers.com is a great site for typography info. I especially like the author's instructions on the use of larger margins and increased white space (www.typographyforlawyers.com).

Good tip. I am never satisfied with my typeface in legal docs. I really don't like Arial or TNR, but legal typeface must be crisp and formal. I'll have to take a look at the ones you've suggested.
