Learn to write like the
world’s best lawyers
Bite-sized lessons that will level up your legal writing skills—and fast. Because becoming an amazing writer doesn’t have to be hard.
The plaintiff has blatantly violated this Court’s critical filing rules, specifically, the Court’s deadline for filing a pleading. The plaintiff filed its original complaint three years before the instant complaint’s filing. Said complaint was dismissed in its entirety by this Honorable Court. The mandatory case law of this jurisdiction makes very clear that parties may not cite to dismissed complaints to meet a filing deadline, for a variety of reasons.
Bland verbs and adverbs make reading a bore.
Empty formalisms bog down busy readers.
Abstract and vague words confuse readers.
The plaintiff can’t sidestep this Court’s filing deadline by reaching for a dead document three years after it was filed—and dismissed. Resurrecting stale complaints like this is, in the words of this Court, “nearly never” worth it. Courts have learned that the facts shift, witnesses disappear, and the judge’s time is wasted. The Court can’t expect to save resources or move the case closer to a conclusion. What the Court can expect is many more months of litigation.
Tighten sentences with targeted verbs and nouns.
Use sentence structure like clustered examples.
Add flair with inverted syntax and echo words.
In Rooker Technical, LLC v. Parker & Leavit Partners, Inc., 786 F.3d 321, 24 (7th Cir. 2023), the court addressed a large bank that was undergoing significant financial hardships. The bank desired to file for bankruptcy under Section 2314 for the sole purpose of Subsection 2314(b)(i)’s creditor-submission deadline. The court, in its opinion, held that the bank could not proceed with its case, holding in relevant part that “prophylactic filings are not permitted within this jurisdiction.”
Dense citations and terms bog down readers.
Unexplained facts force readers to work.
Parties cannot file for bankruptcy “prophylactic[ly].” Rooker Technical, LLC v. Parker & Leavit Partners, Inc., 786 F.3d 321, 24 (7th Cir. 2023). The Seventh Circuit has held that filing to trigger the creditor deadline—which allows bankruptcy filers to sweep in their debts based on when they file their bankruptcy petition—is improper. Even if a credit union has the best of intentions in filing early—the Seventh Circuit has consistently held the filing should be dismissed.
Guide readers through key legal principles.
Tell a story to build and engage readers.
The Court has issued a number of rulings and decisions to the parties, stating unequivocally, that no further document submissions would be received. Ignoring said warnings repeatedly, without explaining the basis to this Court or to the opposing party at any juncture, and without filing the proper corrective documents, the defendant has breached a variety of court rules in the instant case. The only remaining question is whether or not said sanctions are appropriate.
Crammed sentence structures taxes readers.
Splitting the subject and verb injects confusion.
Redundant legalese wastes readers’ time
The Court ruled—for the third time—that the parties may not file any more documents. But the defendant filed two more documents anyway. And he didn’t explain why. Now the Court need only decide whether to sanction him.
Build better sentences with simple strategies.
Use writing mechanics to tighten prose.
Cut clutter by learning common red flags.
