IM acronyms for lawyers?

Attorney Roger W. Hughes has penned Legalese in the Age of IM (Instant Messaging), 18 App. Advoc. 14 (summer 2005).  He suggests that, due to word limits and lawyers' desire to "write the short brief that still 'says it all,' " briefs may soon be written in "IM."  Perhaps some of his suggested acronyms will catch on?
