Congratulations to Skills Prof Editor Chris Wren for winning "Best-out-of-State" brief in Texas Bar Twitter competition

Our own Chris Wren, assistant editor here at the Legal Skills Prof Blog, just won "Honorable Mention" for submitting the "Best-out-of-State" entry in the State Bar of Texas Appellate Section's recent Twitter brief competition. Chris, who is far too humble to post this himself, is an Assistant Attorney General for the Wisconsin Department of Justice in the criminal appeals division.

As we had previously reported (here too), the Texas Bar Appellate Section held a contest to determine who could write the best brief in 140 characters or less per the limitations of Twitter. The original announcement stated:

Have you ever yearned for shorter page limits on appellate briefs?

Do you think any argument worth making can be done in 140 characters or less?

Do you think “twitter” is something birds do?

If you have answered “yes” (or “no”) to any of these questions, we have the perfect competition for you!

Chris' winning entry?

3 dead. Jury convicted. 1 issue. Suff evid: def on vidtape hlding gun & stnding ovr vics; pwdr on hand; DNA on gun; confession. Must affirm.

We're so proud! Congrats again, Chris.
