Check out the September 12, 2018 edition of the Daily Journal for a pithy comment on Troester

As in full of pith. With a young attorney in my firm, Lilit Ter-Astvatsatryan, we wrote an opinion column for the Daily Journal, published on September 12, 2018 and entitled Unaccounted Time: Reading the tea leaves of Troester. Wait, something is wrong with that. If Lilit is a young attorney, then I am old. So let’s start again…

With a colleague at my firm, Lilit Ter-Astvatsatryan, we wrote an opinion column for the Daily Journal, published on September 12, 2018 and entitled Unaccounted Time: Reading the tea leaves of Troester. Much better.

State Court Docket Watch Summer 2010 now available from the Federalist Society

Like the headline says, State Court Docket Watch Summer 2010 is now available here on the The Federalist Society website.   The newest edition includes thoughts on Business and Professions Code section 17200 after the passage of Proposition 64.  Pay no attention to the odd coincidence that one of the contributors has a name very similar to mine.  I would never engage in shameless self-promotion and how dare you say that.

Daily Journal article on right to discover witness identities in class actions

The April 21, 2010 edition of the Daily Journal includes my article, entitled "Witnesses Cannot Hide," in the Perspective column. It explains that the right to discover putative class member identity in class actions is really the right to discover witness identity in general. Discovery of witnesses is a foundational element of civil discovery rights. The arguments about privacy notices are intended to distract from this core right.
