An Appeal A Day

My eagle-eyed colleague Ben Shatz has been mining the 9th Circuit Web site productively lately:

  • Yesterday, he spotted the fact that 9th Cir. memdispos [are] now on-line!, as Howard noted. ("Memdispo" is short for memorandum disposition: a decision without a published opinion.) This morning he sent word of the Court's reminder that these decisions remain unciteable, and are now available online simply for efficiency and convenience.

Did anyone happen to blog Howard's presentation last night on electronic filing and the Courts of Appeals? I'd like to read that.

Finally, John at The Legal Reader highlights portions of the California Court of Appeal's (Fourth District, Division 3) recent Quest International decision I've had so much fun reading. Footnote 26 is a keeper.
