California Supreme Court Week

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Sep 6, 2013

In some ways, this has been California Supreme Court week for me and UC Davis. As one of the counsel on the brief for the California State Bar, I attended the oral arguments in the case before the Court on the admission to the California State Bar of Sergio Garcia, an undocumented immigrant who has lived in the United States since he was an infant. Chief Justice of California Tani Cantil-Sakauye, King Hall Class of 1984, presided over the arguments, which included an argument by Ross Moody, King Hall Class of 1989, on behalf of Amicus Curiae California Attorney General Kamala Harris. I blogged about the arguments at Immigration Prof Blog.

Today, I attended “A Conversation with California Supreme Court Justice Carol Corrigan,” a lunch in Sacramento sponsored by the American Board of Trial Advocates and the Barristers’ Club of Sacramento. I ran into a number of alums, including Justice Louis Mauro '87 of the California Court of Appeals (Third District). Justice Corrigan entertained and offered important lessons about practice before the California Supreme Court.
