I have an assignment where i have to write a case note only using opinions of only 3 judges. The point is it says it should be around 1000 but i have only 300. How can i add words? Should i just explain the opinions of only 3 judges under ruling heading?

I always start my case notes by:

1 stating summary of material facts applied by each justice

2 outlining legal issue and contention discussed

3 then the legal principles judges apply and their reasoning and

4 the courts decision at end.

I'd expand reasoning to say how judges applied the legal principle to the facts.
