Indiana Court of Appeals reading Typography for Lawyers?

The Indiana Court of Appeals announced this week that it will begin publishing its opinions in a new format. While the new format does not follow the recommendations of Typography for Lawyers, it will be a huge improvement. A larger typeface (one that will facilitate scanning and optical character recognition) is perhaps the most notable.

While I favor Butterick’s recommended formatting, there are many other terrific formats. One is suggested by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Painting With Print.

Will the Indiana Supreme Court follow suit in the near future?
