The former RWUSOL Dean of Students, now retired, Dennis Tonsing, has a recent post on his blog Write Right! you may want to take a look at if you think judges won't care about your writing skills as long as you have "good ideas."  Tonsing writes:

"In Florida, U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell denied a motion to dismiss without prejudice, saying that it was 'riddled with unprofessional grammatical and typographical errors that nearly render the entire motion incomprehensible.'”

Yikes!
