Don’t let this happen to you.

Everyone practicing in Louisiana’s courts of appeal should be familiar with the Uniform Rules of Louisiana Courts of Appeal. Just as 80% of success in life is showing up (see Woody Allen), about 80% of success in the court of appeal is knowing and following the Uniform Rules.

Uniform Rule 2-12 governs the form and content of a brief. What happens when you attempt to file a brief that fails to comply with Rule 2-12? You may get one of these—which is not bad unless (like most lawyers) you waited until the last day to file your brief.
