DJ Profiles APJ Boren

Today's DJ profiles 2d DCA APJ Roger Boren in Justice Roger Boren of the 2nd District says a concise, well-organized brief is most effective. The article begins:
Roger W. Boren, administrative presiding justice for the 2nd District Court of Appeal, doesn't plan to stand for re-election in 2018.
"As administrative presiding justice, Boren spends time not just on cases but on personnel matters, finding ways to save time and money, and tracking caseloads. His most recent figures show that the average caseload for the state's 105 appellate justices is 37. But in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th districts, the average is 44." Regarding oral argument, "I don't think we credit oral argument as much as it used to be."

Presiding Justice Roger W. Boren
"I'll be gone sometime between now and then. Next year I'll have been here 30 years" 
A thick respondent's brief? "I smell a reversal coming"
"You may end with the table of contents but that's where the judge is beginning."
