With a view to facilitating the most adequate and detailed consideration, in the State Supreme Court, of each case from the standpoint of the litigants, their counsel, and the public, the Judicial Council has under consideration a proposal to recommend to the State Supreme Court a rule of appellate practice requiring the appellant at the very commencement of his brief to make a "statement of questions involved." This practice has been found in the State of Pennsylvania to give most excellent results. It has been referred to in numerous cases. In order to show how this practice actually works, there are set forth in the footnote 2 typical "statements of questions involved," taken from actual briefs recently filed in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
