No brief? This is not a Second Circuit case, but I think it should be of interest to appellate practitioners. Legacy Bank, a party in Lee v. Legacy Bank, decided that it was not worth the money to submit a responsive brief on appeal. It told the Court that the transcript in the case was sufficient to warrant affirmance of the decision appealed from by its adversary.

The Court disagreed. Read the decision of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, which can be found here. And thanks to the Legal Writing Prof Blog for cluing me in to this case.
