TEN MISTAKES TO AVOID AT THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT

(greetings from Munich) 
 
 
10.   SHOTGUNNING THE ISSUES
 
It is not unusual to find a brief alleging a dozen or more errors that were committed by a district court, with issues sprinkled generously throughout footnotes and the reply brief.  Such a “shotgun” approach often exhibits desperation or incompetence. Raising multitudes of issues in an appeal also makes the oral argument particularly challenging, because the attorney will undoubtedly be able to discuss no more than two or three issues during the allotted 15 minutes. Even if only a limited number of issues are raised in the appeal, unpersuasive arguments should be dropped in favor of focusing on the stronger ones. "
