Fellow blogger Larry Primeaux had a good article on trial briefs this morning located here. I agree with a lot of his concerns. I have had parties give the judge a trial brief before with all this detailed legal analysis which if looked at closely did not even resemble what the law actually is, but it sure sounded good. Trial briefs do have their purpose. They can be extremely helpful in making sure that you prove all of your elements of a case. Additionally, they can give you a good head start if the Court asks for findings of fact and conclusions of law under Rule 52 of the Rules of Civil Procedure.
