That's the headline in today's MetNews about the passing of Phil Goar, a research attorney in the Second District (Divs. 7 and 1) for over 30 years. Service will be June 11 at 1 p.m. at the Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier. As one mutual friend said, Phil will be remembered "in the annals of appellate and anti-SLAPP law." He was valuable contributor to the LA appellate scene and will be sorely missed.
