The Judiciary Act of 1789

No one gets it right all the time, and that includes courts. But 230 years ago today, an act of Congress created the country’s federal courts, and that’s worth celebrating. You may not know this, but the only court required by the Constitution was the Supreme Court. It left the rest to Congress. Here’s what Read More

My 9/11 Memory

Do you remember where you were? I was 22 years old, and I was at a small fitness center in the apartment complex we lived in. It was early, and I was the only one in there. I got on the treadmill, wearing earphones, listening to music, and absent-mindedly looking at a TV that was Read More

Tribute to a Courtroom Legend

“Some people walk the walk,” my wife said to me this morning. Well, the flags at the federal courthouse in the city of angels flew at half staff on Friday to honor U.S. District Judge Manuel Real, who passed away last week at 95. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he was the longest-serving active Read More

Farewell to the Great Liberal Lion

Stephen Reinhardt, one of the most influential federal judges of the past half century, died suddenly yesterday. Here’s the news from the L.A. Times. We called him the liberal lion if we liked him and other names if we didn’t. He didn’t care. Like the late, great Harry Pregerson, he cared about which outcome was right Read More

The Greatest Generation, Indeed

Harry Pregerson passed away on Saturday, and if you haven’t heard of him, he’s worth learning about and remembering. If you’re like me, you never met him, but you knew who he was because you practiced law in Los Angeles (or California, for that matter, and a lot of other states, too). And if you’re like me, you’ll miss him Read More

A Big Anniversary for the Bill of Rights

Thursday will mark 225 years to the day. On December 15, 1791, the Commonwealth of Virginia became the eleventh state to ratify the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution. That meant that three-fourths of state legislatures had approved them, which meant the Bill of Rights was born. To commemorate the occasion, here’s a great Read More

Our Great Living Poet

Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature on Thursday, and it was nice to see the news. You may not know it depending on your walk of life, but Dylan is one of the great American poets of the past hundred years, and he’s had a lot to say about law and justice, too. He’s apparently the first songwriter Read More

The Circle of Life

Earlier this month, the California Court of Appeal published an interesting DUI case that we may talk about next week. This week, I want to talk about something else. My wife and I welcomed a baby boy into the world on Saturday. He’s our first. He spent his first three days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where Read More

Patient Privacy Gives Way for Good Cause

If you’re a doctor in California, here’s a healthy reminder that the Medical Board can subpoena your patients’ records for good cause, over their objection and yours. In a recent decision, the California Court of Appeal upheld an order that compelled a doctor to produce three of his patients’ records even though all three didn’t want Read More
