Plain-language task force
I'm meeting this morning with the Texas Pattern Jury Charges plain-language task force, for which I am the drafting consultant.
- Will I be able to persuade them to use "But" instead of "However," to begin a sentence?
- Will I be able to persuade them to abandon the word preponderance?
- Will I be able to get them to use "indirect evidence" instead of "circumstantial evidence"?
