As writers, we tend to forget that the reader isn’t as familiar with the details of our case as we are. We are so intimate with the facts and the relationships among them that our recollection of fact patterns is easily triggered, even by superficial references.

Not so for the reader, who hasn’t been working the case. Images of the litigants and their conduct don’t take shape as readily in the reader’s mind. Conceptual phrases that can remind the writer of entire gestalts may do nothing for the reader.
