"Seven Ways Up"

Ben Shatz, chair of the LA County Bar Assn's Appellate Courts Committee, had a terrific article in Friday's Daily Journal. He writes about the seven ways a matter can get to the California Supreme Court. Can you name them all? Take a minute . . .

Keep thinking . . .

Here they are:

(1) Petition for review, (2) writ petition, (3) death penalty appeal, (4) Public Utility Commission appeal, (5) review of discipline recommendation by Commission on Judicial Performance or State Bar, (6) certified question, (7) sua sponte grant of review.

Give yourself a pat on the back if you got them all. I didn't.
