Legal writing takes many forms, including pleadings, motions, briefs, letters, and e-mails. At the top of the legal writing chain are the written opinions from our judges.

In coming up with these cases, I have talked with justices, judges, and leading lawyers across the state, and these are the cases that were mentioned most often. This column covers some of these important cases, and others will be covered in the next issue.
