Getting Up to Speed

Over the last several months, several local appellate justices have received important Judicial Council appointments. 
The Legislature passed a budget in June, cutting $350 from the judicial branch budget.  The Judicial Council allocated the cuts in July.

In August, the OCBA Appellate Law Section feted the 4/3 at its annual Court Appreciation Lunch.  Several justices and dozens of court staff mixed and mingled with section members over lunch on the court patio, expertly arranged by section chair Lisa McCall and program chair Todd Lundell.

Yesterday, the Commission on Judicial Appointments unanimously confirmed Goodwin Liu's appointment as Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court. 

And today, like NOW:  Appellate specialist Rick Derevan of Snell & Wilmer with speak to the OCBA Appellate Law Section about preserving and exploiting the record in business appeals.  Come join us at McCormick & Schmick's in Santa Ana at 12 today.
