So there you have it. As Blaise Pascal ( a brilliant writer skilled at humor, mockery, and vicious satire) said, "I made this letter longer than usual because I lack the time to make it short." Can't say it better (or should I say shorter) than that. Bet you can't either.Counsel and the parties should be aware of the court’s experience that shorter briefs are almost always more persuasive because they get to the point faster. They also contain less extraneous material that dilutes the parties’ main arguments, and frequently interferes with prompt resolution.
You can read the order here.
Nugget (I know you've missed it): Counsel should be aware that the court discourages reply briefs as usually repetitive and therefore wasteful. Reply briefs therefore should promptly state the novel matter contained in the opposition brief that merits a reply, and not merely assert that opposing counsel has misstated the law.
