The Arkansas Supreme Court handed down a per curiam decision on October 29, 2009, that makes several changes to various Arkansas Supreme Court Rules. Two significant changes include: (1) the change in the font size for appellate briefs to 14 points and (2) the change in the page length for opening briefs to 30 pages. Note that there is no change to the limit of 15 pages for an appellant’s reply brief.
Justice Danielson, concurring in the per curiam decision, expresses his hope that the enforcement of the Court’s rules is made a high priority.
