The Georgia Court of Appeals has updated its rules on forms of briefs. Practitioners who rely on "shell" forms to start their briefs need to take a careful look at the Court's new Rules 25-27. The Court posted a helpful explanation on its website to explain the differences between the old and new Rules for briefing.
Unlike the Eleventh Circuit, the Georgia Court of Appeals still does not require a Table of Contents or a Table of Authorities, though many appellate lawyers will include those as a matter of course (they still don't count toward the word limits, see Rule 24(f)(3)). The Court's explanation comments that these tables are "suggested for briefs of significant length or complexity."
