Federal Appellate Rulemaking on Brief Word Counts

The Federal Appellate Rules Advisory Committee held a public hearing today on the proposal to reduce the word limit of federal appellate briefs from 14,000 words to 12,500 words.

When drafting my March 19 post on the issue, I searched around a bit looking for a single post that covered How Appealing's coverage of the issue. There it is. Plus, it contains the promise of links to news coverage as it becomes available.
