New Judge Sleet Formatting Guidelines for Briefs
On 3/29/07, Judge Sleet posted new guidelines for formatting and filing briefs in cases pending before His Honor. The guidelines require that 2 copies of all briefing on motions and letter briefs requesting relief (excluding appendices, declarations, affidavits and exhibits) be filed with the court. A party cannot file a brief that exceeds the page limits set forth by the court or the local rules until they have court approval to do so. All briefs and memoranda need to be double-spaced, with 1 inch margins, left justification, and Times New Roman 12 pt. font. Any copies of briefs, memoranda, and/or appendices that are filed with the Court, need to be firmly bound (preferably spiral) at the left margin. These guidelines can also be found on the District of Delaware website.
