Lawyers typically have special requirements for the preparation of 'pleadings' and other court-filed documents. Here are some examples of how Repeat blocks can be used to prepare a 'style' of the case.

   More samples and examples of captions and signature blocks can be found here as well.

   To keep things aligned, you may wish to use a 3 column table, the left side of which contains the parties' names, the center (very narrow) column of which contains the 'squiggles' and the right column of which contains the case info, etc.

 

   Examples are provided below. You should be able to highlight, copy and paste any of these examples into your document. However, some margin and table settings could be lost in the translation. If the copy/paste is not accurate, you can download the identical examples from this URL. Repeat (Case Captions).doc

 

   (Remember, the colors are for illustrative purposes. 'Painted' text is not required.)

Now come your <<*Options*!plaintiffs!*Plaintiff/Plaintiff/Plaintiffs>>, <<*Repeat*!plaintiffs!*[Plaintiff]>> and state the following:

<<*AskRepeat*!P!*>>

<<*AskRepeat*!D!*>>

 

The following is the identical setup as the above except we have shortened the groupnames to a single character. (The shorter the groupname, the better the appearance, but the groupname must be ‘clear’ enough to the actual operator.

 

<<*Repeat(and)*!P!*[PLAINTIFF NAME]

       , Plaintiff{!P!/OR/ORs}

   Create a list of shareholders using Pathagoras ‘Repeat’ function. Tell Pathagoras not to repeat the first row by including the ‘header’ argument. Include an optional question inside the final ‘administrative text' asterisk. When processed, Pathagoras will ask “How many shareholders?”. When answered, Pathagoras will repeat the appropriate number of rows, incrementing each variable as appropriate.

<<*Repeat(header)*How many shareholders?*

Shareholder

Number of Shares

Class of Shares
