|The original symposium|
Many thanks to Mitch Abbott and his firm Richards Watson Gershon for hosting the Wine & Cheese (and desserts) Reception for Appellate Lawyers and Judges at the Annual Meeting! This is a great tradition -- and the wines are always amazing (this year: Caymus, Duckhorn, Ridge, Silver Oak to name a few).
Putting aside the State Bar Annual Meeting...
The DJ's been feeding appellate needs w/many good articles the past few days!
- On Thursday, GSMR's Alana Rotter shared Maximize the Impact of Amicus Support.
- On Friday, Emily Green got to work with Appellate Justices Get Mixed Results at State Supreme Court, which includes a chart showing reversals and affirmances by district and division. She concludes that this past year was a good one for 2/3's Justice Kitching, who affirmed four of her opinions. She contrasts this with Justices in the 6th District who had four reversals, to which Justice Rushing yawns "big deal."

- Friday's DJ also featured "Law of the case -- a case in point," by the Reed Smith team of Jim Martin, Paula Mitchell and Anne Grignon, focusing on the recent Lummi Nation opinion. Anne recently also published Why You Need a Court Reporter to Set the Record Straight in Law360, which links to this useful chart showing which counties have reporters.
- Today's DJ has JUSTICE Hoffstadt's latest article, Fourth Amendment Geometry.
