Unhappy Holidays for Untimely Appeals

That's the title of GMSR's Kent Bullard's article in yesterday's DJ reviewing recent 2013 cases like:
  • Frye v. County of Butte (Nov. 27, 2013) [untimely appeal from statement of decision]
  • Dattani v. Lee (Dec. 19, 2013) [untimely appeal from voluntary dismissal after summary adjudication] (citing Kurwa v. Kislinger (2013) 57 Cal. 4th 1097)
  • Ray Haluch Gravel Co. v. Central Pension Fund of International Union of Operating Engineers and Participating Employers, No. 12-992 (Jan. 15, 2014) [untimely appeal from judgment leaving contractual attorneys' fees unresolved].
From "ho, ho, ho" to "oh, no no!"
