Steve, at the SW Virginia Law Blog notes that the Virginia Supreme Court is considering requiring lawyers to use Courier, Arial or Verdana in all filings with the court.
What do they have against Times New Roman? And I'm with Steve ... Why in the world would they accept Courier? Personally, I think Comic Sans should be used for all briefs. That would help keep things in perspective. Okay, maybe not for capital cases. For those, Chiller should be the required font.
