Are exhibits listed in the order they appear or in order of importance? I'm following the sample format on my county's "self-help center" for pro se litigants, and the example is for another type of case. It has a section for presenting the facts, and under that section (I. FACTS), I list all the relevant facts to the case. The purpose is to refute the libelous claims, so I provide the backstory of what actually happened, leading up to this person creating their libelous content. Thus, while it seems that the main libelous story would be "exhibit A," that doesn't come in until further down the list.
So is "exhibit A,", in my case, a relatively minor piece of evidence refuting an unflattering and false portion of the story, but unrelated to the main allegation (which is libel per se). Or is "Exhibit A" or "Exhibit 1" the libelous material and Exhibit B, the next most important piece of evidence, regardless of the order its presented in the list?
