For our Appellate Briefs, we are required to have 1 inch margins on all sides. However, when opposing counsel gave me her brief, her bottom margin was clearly set at 1/2 inch or less! What does that mean? It means that she could get more than 20 pages of information into her brief!!! What does that mean? That means that her brief is more detailed and developed than anyone else in the class, which means that she might get a better grade!Furthermore, I could tell that she manually typed the page numbers. This is not fair and pisses me off. I know that the professor will read her brief, but will he notice that she did not comply with the rules???What a female dog!!!
If it will affect your grade in anyway, I would send an anonymous email to the prof.

You don't think that it will be seen as tattling and being petty? You are probably right b/c I bet if she or her friends had dirt on me, they would notify administration.
Honestly man if you notice it that easily I am willing to bet your professor will as well. We had the same margin requirements and on a rough draft I accidently had the margin at 1.2", and the professor noticed and told me to check my margins. At least at my school complying with the format counted for 12 raw points on our grade so I bet they will check.
