Welcome to SCOTX! You have some incredible colleagues. I wish you could have joined us when SCOAR spent time with your court in Texarkana. Best wishes and let me know if you are ever in Arkansas.

. gave this excellent response when asked by a Texarkana high school student what young people can do address partisan polarization in political discourse. We need more leadership like this.

You are an appellate attorney at heart or you wouldnt be tweeting your favorite standard of review. Go get those findings of facts and “after thoughtful consideration” rulings by the trial court . . .

I think take the lead from the judge. My husband is a physician and it just sometimes feels like people dont know how to be casual with us. If in an unofficial setting we say please ca us Rhonda and Michael - then its because we really prefer it and its a sign of respect to you

Also, there are public places where the last thing I want is someone loudly calling me by my title. The grocery store is an example... some discretion is helpful.

I am the same way. I always say if I am not in the robe, Rhonda is fine when someone corrects themself. Most who have known me for decades use the title and I appreciate the respect, but the reverse doesnt bother me. It has not occurred on the bench- then its about the office.

My harshest response in an opinion in SCOAR where party raised 27 issues was: I would not be addressing every point because “many of them necessitate no analysis in this opinion because they were wholly unsupported by any factual or legal argument."

Appellate practice tip: There is a point of diminishing return on points on appeal. Keep headings concise for readability & to save page space analysis. Consolidate evidentiary rulings. Focus on 1st impression issues & constitution violations. Say no to 8 POA

Then my law clerks and I have a final early morning meeting for 1-2 hours prior to OA where we walk through the points on appeal again. Everyone is different but this works for me. Secret is out. I think you have to find how you best process information. /3

We get the case 4 weeks prior to OA. Therefore I am well versed 2 weeks out. My prep is to reread all briefs start to finish the night before OA and map out the case one last time procedurally. This is mandatory for me. /2

I view OA as a conversation. I do not have prepared questions but areas of concern to have to a dialogue with counsel. I do not appreciate misrepresentation of facts or the law - I will be direct in questioning the accuracy if I believe that is occurring /1

This thread is a must for appellate attorneys - dont miss the “how to guide of hyperlinking” at end of the thread. Please be kind to appellate judges and hyperlink within briefs...
