EDITOR’S FOREWORD No Longer on Demand

By Benjamin G. Shatz

Benjamin G. Shatz, Editor-in-Chief of this journal, is a certified Specialist in Appellate Law and Co-chairs the Appellate Practice Group of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, in Los Angeles.

In August, I received an email from Kimberly McDermott Stefanowicz. The McDermott name should ring a bell, since Tom McDermott was a founder of this journal and its longest-serving editorial board member. Sadly, the email was a notification from Tom’s daughter that he had passed away. Tom’s dedication to the Litigation Section and this journal were unparalleled. He chaired the section in 1993-94 and wrote extensively for this publication, including his regular column called McDermott on Demand. To honor Tom, here is the obituary from his daughter:

Thomas John McDermott, Jr. (1931-2021)
