For the first time in more than 26 years, Maryland lawyers have new font options for the briefs they file in the state’s appellate courts. In an administrative order issued last week, Chief Justice Matthew J. Fader approved an updated list of fonts for filings in the Maryland Supreme Court and Appellate Court. The list comes two months after the justices received a letter from Joseph Dudek, an insurance coverage and appellate attorney at Kramon & Graham, P.A., requesting a modernized font selection. According to Fader’s order, the font list had not been updated since July 1, 1997.
