DJ Profiles 2/1's PJ Mallano

Today's DJ profiles Justice Mallano, with a theme of comprehensiveness: i.e., sometimes he does "more work than necessary"! As PJ, he holds oral advocates to their time. One practitioner (from out of state) noted that Justice Mallano was active at oral argument and "he ripped me to shreds."
"Try to answer the questions. ...
If you still don't answer, we'll assume you can't."

In other "justice profile" news, Friday's DJ reported that Justice Rebecca Wiseman will retire at the end of next month. This will leave 3 vacancies in the 5th DCA and be an eighth Court of Appeal vacancy statewide.
