APJ Gilbert to appeal?

Update on Gilbert v. Controller of the State of California, LASC BC487949
Today's DJ reports that judges and justices who wish to retire early but are blocked by the anti-moonlighting rule from taking new state jobs until their terms end, have had their hopes dashed by a ruling upholding the rule. (See Anti-moonlighting rule applies to judges who retire, court rules.)
Erica Reilley (of Jones Day) -- an active member of the LA appellate community -- representing Justice Gilbert is quoted as saying "An appeal is certainly an option."

Also in today's DJ is Creating Records to Win Appeals, about Duchrow v. Forrest (2013) 215 Cal.App.4th 1359, by Reed Smith's Jim Martin (former chair of LACBA's Appellate Courts Committee, former president of the Cal Academy of Appellate Lawyers, and president-elect of the American Academy) and Kasey Curtis (an associate in Reed Smith's appellate group).

Don't miss the Forrest case...
