hanging-topic[(topic-from-metas metas)]{Exact line spacing is the key}
If you practice in a jurisdiction that requires court filings with em{line numbers}, youve faced the vexing problem of keeping the line numbers vertically aligned with the text. Looking at xref{court opinions}, even judges are often defeated by this formatting task.
But the secret is simple: use exact xref{line spacing} with the line numbers and the xref{body text}.
For example, California state courts require filings to use double line spacing (which works out to 28 lines per page), 12-point type, and line numbers in the left margin. Ill use this as a basic model and you can adapt it to the rules in your jurisdiction.
