Editor’s Foreword: Spring into Summer
By Benjamin G. Shatz, Editor-in-Chief
For the past 30 years, the Litigation Section’s premiere publication has been this journal, California Litigation, which has published three issues a year, Spring, Summer, and Fall (sometimes slipping into Winter.) You are now reading the Spring 2018 issue, even though it is now Summer 2018. This may trouble you. Allow me to explain.
To begin, as a child growing up in perennially sunny Southern California, I never really understood "seasons." Despite having heard of Princess Summerfall Winterspring, it was not until college that I came to concretely recognize seasonsâand that was solely because classes were scheduled on a quarter system.
Not buying it? Ok, look, we fell behind schedule a bit, starting last year when the Bar and the Sections divorced, giving rise to the CLA. Despite the administrative and technical challenges and hassles posed, you the reader deserve great contentânot excuses. All we can say is that we will try to get back on track, and even attempt to publish twice more this year.
