The sun doesn’t rise and set on spreadsheets; we’ve got briefs to write, too! Here is a rule that I see broken frequently:
Use a hyphen to create two-word adjectives, but not when the two words are used as a noun or verb.
The new schedule will cut off discovery as of June 15th. This cut-off date will apply to both document discovery and deposition discovery.
Subpoenas will be issued to certain third parties with knowledge of the transaction. The third-party discovery may be substantial.
