"Appellate Divisions Asked for Details"

That's the title of an article (here) in today's Recorder, that begins and ends thusly:

The Conference of California Bar Associations is sponsoring legislation that would require jurists serving on trial court appellate panels to provide "a brief statement of the reasons" behind their judgment. Just typing "affirmed" or "reversed" wouldn't cut it anymore under the bill.
The Judicial Council has yet to take a public position on the bill, AB 1932.
