Justice Ikola & other SCANworthy items in today's DJ

Today's Daily Journal features a profile of 4/3's Justice Ikola.

No, not that kind of engineer.

 The article quotes this line from his Starbucks Corp. v. Superior Court (2008) 168 Cal.App.4th 1436, 1453 opinion: "The civil justice system is not well-served by turning Starbucks into a Daddy Warbucks." 

"I'll have a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon."

Two other noteworthy items in today's DJ:
  • A book review of Justice Sotomayor's My Beloved World, which reviewer Elaine Elinson calls a page-turner; and
  • An article titled Will the Composition of the State High Court Affect California Arbitration Law? -- pointing out that Justice Moreno (who penned Gentry, Discovery Bank and Sonic-Calabasas) and Chief Justice George (who voted with the majority in those cases) are no longer on the court.
Not Sonic-Calabasas, but Sonic nonetheless.
