“When I pull up a memo with links, I have three immediate impressions:
- This attorney knows how I work
- This is going to be easy
- I hope other attorneys notice this.”
— Hon. David Nuffer, United States District Judge, D. Utah.
“The requirement that lawyers use hyperlinks will not happen overnight, but it will happen. The technology is simple and inexpensive. Most importantly, the ability to instantly put your finger on a reference is invaluable to the reader.
Whether I was a solo practitioner or a member of a mega firm, if I had a federal case, I would start thinking right now about using hyperlinks whenever allowed. Pretty soon you will have no choice–and that will be a significant leap forward.”
— Hon. Richard Kopf, Senior United States District Judge, D. Neb.
“I find hyperlinks to be a very convenient way to check case citations, read pin-point case cites, and view attachments without having to open a new window or toggle between screens. I hope lawyers make greater use of this capability in federal court filings in the future.”
—Hon. John Lungstrum, Senior United States District Judge, D. Kan.
