He calls the cartoon a “graphic novelette” and says it complies with court rules requiring 12-point or larger type and one-inch margins, Bloomberg says. The illustrator attends school with Kohn’s daughter, Katie, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in film studies at Harvard. The U.S. Justice Department filed suit in April against Apple and five publishers claiming a conspiracy…
Informative and amusing. What more can you ask for from a brief?

…That should cover me, right?
Law students say the darnedest things.
