I think the cultural switch happened a few years before this, starting in the late 90s serif fonts started to seem less "cultured and distinguished" and more "smarmy guy in pleated pants and big glasses who spilled Zima on his iMac."

I remember being taught some time in the mid-'00s that serifs are for print and sans is for screens.

Perpetuating the stereotype since 1978.

I work for the Federal Judiciary, so we still use Times Roman as the default for legal documents. In fact, our court mandates that Times Roman 12pt be used for all filings.

Except for prisoner/pro Se filings; those usually come in handwritten.

What is their opinion on double spacing?

It was in 2003, when the latest release of Microsoft word defaulted to calibri.
