appellate practice tips

The North Dakota Supreme Court has a wonderful list of appellate practice tips.  Two of my favorite items about professionalism?

"Civility is not too much to expect in a civilized society's alternative to brute force, stealth, and deception." See Jacobson v. Garaas, 2002 ND 181, ¶ 37, 652 N.W.2d 918.

Not every lawyer excess is justified by the mantra of zealous representation. See Jacobson v. Garaas, 2002 ND 181, ¶ 23, 652 N.W.2d 918.

I like "Judges are not ferrets." A close second is "When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount." Classics.
