Harry Steinberg, a member of Lester Schwab Katz & Dwyer, writes: It is not enough to cite cases in a pro forma, "business as usual" manner, as all too many lawyers do. You have to do more than sprinkle cases through your motions or briefs like salt. You have to make every case you cite count. Put differently, it is not enough to say all the right words - you have to get the melody right as well
