August 2019 E-Flyer

 RENEW MEMBERSHIP    DONATE TO CADC

E-Filing Update: The takeover of California by TrueFiling 3.0 is now complete. The California Supreme Court rolled out on July 27, joining the six appellate districts. By all accounts the new system is easier, more intuitive, and faster than the original. Some users have experienced occasional glitches, however, and if that happens to you, the support team at TrueFiling is on standby during business hours at (855) 959-8868 or by Email:  Support@TrueFiling.com. After hours come to the CADC Forum and check out previous discussions or start a new one. Fixes include trying a different browser or a different computer, checking your security settings, or most effectively, having a glass of wine and coming back to the situation in a more relaxed mood to try again.

California Style Manual - Is it optional? Good question! I looked and looked, and decided that although it is the "the official organ for the styles to be used in the publication of the Official Reports" (Cal. Style Manual (4th Ed. 2000) at p. iv), there was no rule requiring parties to submit briefs using any particular citation format. I WAS WRONG! Sabine Jordan, CADC's outstanding administrative assistant and citation diva, pointed me to California Rules of Court, rule 1.200 gives the party filing a document the option of using the Style Manual or The Bluebook. BUT, an Advisory Committee Comment under rule 8.204 regarding the contents and form of appellate briefs, states: “Brief writers are encouraged to follow the citation form of the California Style Manual (4th ed., 2000).” So, you can go with The Blue Book if you really want to, but for me personally, if the justices prefer borders of roses on scented paper, I’m going to give it to them. Also, if you want the Court of Appeal to cut and paste from your brief instead of your opponent's, adhering to the Style Manual is the way to go. Make it easy for them, I say! You can pull up a searchable PDF of the current edition by following this link: http://www.sdap.org/downloads/Style-Manual.pdf. Watch this space in the future for tips on commonly-seen citation mistakes.

A Time to Reflect: The first weekend of August was a tough one, with two mass shootings within a few hours of each other claiming the innocent lives of more than 30 people.That came on top of the shooting incident at the Gilroy Garlic Festival less than a week earlier – an event many of us have been to in a district where many of us practice. For myself, in the midst of gnashing my teeth over the political stalemates of the day that seem to make addressing the underlying causes of these events impossible, I also find myself thinking about the fact that my job is to defend the type of people who would commit such acts. The chance of a mass murderer showing up on my client list is slim. But the chance of having one or more comparably dark cases is about 100%. We need to be able to deal with the emotions that come along with that. For the last 30 years or so, humor has largely been my medicine. My first reaction yesterday at seeing a photo of bulletproof back-to-school daypacks was, "Stick a .38 in there and your kiddie will be ready for the first day of school!" When asked a serious question about how do I handle it when I think someone is guilty, my answer has always been, "I do my job." But some days humor doesn't cut it and neither does stoicism. These last 10 days have been like that. When the work starts to feel overwhelming, I turn to friends and family, including my CADC family. There are many resources for coping with work stress, and finding them can start right here. Reach out on the CADC forum, or click on my email link or that of anyone else in the organization, and we will figure out a way to walk through these times.

CADC's President Tonja Torres wants everyone to know that Team CADC will participate for a third year in the Homeboy 5K on Saturday, September 21, 2019, in the Chinatown area of Los Angeles. Anyone can join Team CADC, or support the team with a donation. If you're not going to be in the LA area, you can register as a virtual runner (or walker). We had a fantastic group last year, and we came in 6th place overall in fundraising! This year all participants will receive the 2019 Homeboy 5K T-Shirt, and a 5K souvenir! There will be chip timing and post-event festivities with LIVE DJ, vendor giveaways, and Homeboy Industries marketplace featuring exclusive gear. Virtual Runners receive a t-shirt, bib, and finisher medal by mail. Join Team CADC here:https://homeboy5k.rallybound.com/TeamCADC.

SAVE THE DATE: Block out April 3 and 4th, 2020 to join your colleagues and friends at CADC's 27th Annual Statewide Conference and Seminar. There will be camaraderie, food, and lots of vital MCLS credits on topics you don't want to miss. More information will be coming soon.

BRIEFBANK: The CADC Briefbank has arguments, ideas, and samples that address many of the common issues of indigent appellate practice. If you haven't tried it out, please do. The Briefbank Committee volunteers are on call to help you.  Just post your question to the Briefbank forum. If you are one of the many contributors - thank you!  Keep up the good work!  Members are also encouraged to add their own pleadings to the Briefbank.

SUSTAINING MEMBER BENEFIT: One of the benefits of becoming a CADC sustaining member is that this includes admission to CADC's annual seminar at no additional cost. In order to make this benefit more flexible and useful, the CADC Board has voted to amend this benefit to provide that the annual CADC statewide seminar may be attended for free either by the CADCsustaining member or by another member designated by the sustaining CADC member to attend the seminar in his or her stead.

CADC-SPONSORED MALPRACTICE POLICY: In connection with Complete Equity Markets (CEM), CADC is offering its members a special deal on a custom-tailored malpractice insurance policy. This policy is relatively inexpensive and is geared toward CADC members who handle some privately-retained cases in addition to their court-appointed appeals.

For a copy of the CADC malpractice insurance policy and an application, call Complete Equity Markets and ask CEM to mail you copies of these materials. Telephone: 1-800-323-6234. You can look over the policy and, if you want to obtain coverage, the application takes less than a hour to fill out. You will get a premium quote within a couple of weeks after submitting your application. The premium varies with the percentage of your income derived from non-project appointed cases.

You can obtain this information – the policy application and a price quote – by going to the Complete Equity Markets Web site at http://www.cemins.com/attorneys/lim.php. You can submit your application or send CEM an e-mail at that site, with any questions you may have.

Monthly payments and financing for the payment of annual premiums is now available at very low rates. Contact Complete Equity Markets for more information. If you have any questions regarding this insurance policy contact CADC members Gordon Brownell at gsbrownell@aol.com or (707) 942-4565, or Dave Lampkin at dplampkin@aol.com or (805) 389-7769.
