It's a quiet week in courthouses around the country. But that didn't stop Rumpole from going after the Florida Supreme Court for doing away with Times New Roman in this order. It's a really strange order that goes into effect at 12:03 January 1. 12:03?? It also requires two awful fonts -- Arial or Bookman Old Style. Weird.
But Times New Roman is a bad font for legal documents. The U.S. Supreme Court uses Century Schoolbook, and that's the font that should be the default for all legal pleadings. There's lots out there explaining why Times New Roman is terrible (here, here, here, and here for example).
Anyway, this is what you get when it's a slow court week.
