Facts: Identify the parties involved, their relationship, and all legally relevant, material facts. Omit irrelevant facts.
Rule of Law: This is the Legal Principle(s) that is believed to impact the facts of the case. It may be a Statute or Regulation, a Rule of Evidence, a Court Precedent from similar cases, or a Constitutional provision.
Issue: Being able to succinctly describe the issue is the most important part of your brief. Summarize what the case is about in a single sentence phrased as a question.
Procedural History: Explain how the case got to the court whose opinion you are reading. This requires you to list the holding of the lower court(s), any penalties, sentencing, or damages, who appealed and why (grounds alleged)
Holding: This is a declarative statement by the court answering the issue. It essentially is a yes or no statement.
Reasoning: Summarize the court’s analysis when answering the issue. Essentially, you describe the way the court applied the rule of law to the facts of the case in order to reach its decision.
Significance: Why are we studying this case? For starters, the case may involve rules of evidence or rules of procedure or both. The rule in either event may be new, a significant modification of an existing rule (either expansion orcontraction), or it settles the dissonance among existing rules. It may be significant because it is a particularly sophisticated example of a court’s ruling or even a notable misapplication of a rule, or because it gives a good overview of an area of law, or just because it was written by a notable judge.
