Another obscure issue that drives me nuts

Something I've seen a lot lately is legal papers with the paragraphs indented one inch, rather than one-half inch.

To me, this is stupid and without any known justification. And, it would cost one point for each instance, according to this brief format requirements from a legal writing instructor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, who says: "Indent the first line of each new paragraph by one-half (.5) inch."

(This does not mean I am now accepting sources from Little Rock, Arkansas, as authoritative.)
