Appellate Court Secrets

Check out this month's Orange County Lawyer magazine for "Appellate Court 'Secrets' -- Finally Revealed," by 4/3 senior research attorneys Betsy Forbath, Janice Patronite, and me. 

We offer our personal observations on how the court assigns panels, reviews writ petitions, regards records and appendices, evaluates briefs, researchs issues, and decides cases. 

More importantly, we explain how a magician can make an elephant appear in an empty parking lot!
