See A Year in Review at the Supreme Court of California (Sept. 1, 2015 to Aug. 31, 2016), which begins as follows:
The 2015 – 2016 court year saw the Supreme Court:
- return to a full complement of associate justices,
- continue its 15-year student outreach tradition,
- revise a long-standing rule by ending the disfavored practice of automatically eliminating published Court of Appeal opinions upon grant of review, and
- expand public access by live streaming oral arguments with captions in English and Spanish.
The report has photos, stats (e.g., of the 78 opinions, 35 were civil, 21 criminal, 22 death penalty), and lots of other fun info.
