"in the case at bar"

As I'm commenting on appellate brief drafts and discouraging students from using terms like "in the case at bar," I thought it would be good to ask what terms attorneys/judges generally do NOT want to see in student/associate writing.  So comment on this message to let me know what other helpful advice I can give them as they move towards their first summer of work . . .

Thanks!

Sub judice, comes now, and silly, unnecessary parenthetical definitions: "According to Google Inc. ("Google"), the company . . ."

Could you recommend a good alternative (or several) to the commonly used term "in the case at bar"?
