Organizing Loose Court Papers

Files of loose court papers are frequently out of order. If you are having difficulty understanding the case being tried, organize the papers chronologically. After that, extract every date listed in the papers and create a chronology. That may help you to understand what lead up to the case and how it played out.

Or it may suggest there are some holes in your understanding. Either way, you have made progress in your understanding of the case.
