OCBA Appellate Law Section Update

At yesterday's section meeting, Ed Siebel was elected 2010 chair of the OCBA Appellate Law Section. Lisa Wiley was elected vice-chair.
And as I told the members, after thanking them for the pleasure and privilege of serving in the section leadership for two years, "I am outta here!"

Everyone enjoyed Professor Darmer's timely presentation on Proposition 8, and she fielded questions -- some lengthy and/or loaded -- with aplomb.

Everyone also seemed to enjoy the new meeting location: a private room at the McCormick & Schmick's in Santa Ana. The room is welcoming, with large windows and rich wood paneling. The shape of the room provides better acoustics. And the food -- salmon, chicken, rice, veggies, salad, and iced tea -- was pretty darn good.

I wouldn't be surprised if the new leadership made the new location permanent.
