I once had an opponent's brief stricken three times in an appeal. But the Michigan Court of Appeals (in a 2:1 split) declined to dismiss the opponent's cross appeal.

I have never known the Michigan Court of Appeals to strike a prosecutor's brief, no matter how egregious its departure from proper practice, even while they impose "zero tolerance" rules for minor defects in briefs for civil litigants and defense counsel.
