Have a Happy Holiday season! 

Well, the Holidays are upon us, and while others may complain about the typical Holiday lull, I find I am busier than ever.  In the past, mid-November through December was a slow period.  No one wanted to work and attorneys were busy attending Holiday parties.  But not this year.  I still have deadlines to attend to.  It is very difficult to ask for extensions of time from the courts because I am off somewhere having fun.  The nice part about being an appellate attorney is that I can work when I want, whether it is in the early morning or late at night.  And no dressing up for research and writing! 

 

I had thought about reporting on the Supreme Court's grant of review of the Proposition 8 case, but it seems that everyone else has already reported on it.  No breaking news on that front.  I have to admit I find it difficult to accept the fact that at this stage of human development, we are still dealing with same-sex marriage and legislation designed to control women's bodies.  It is especially disheartening to think that California's Proposition 8 will be reviewed by the Supreme Court when other states are allowing same sex marriages.  How far we have NOT come!  And when I think of how often the U.S. Supreme Court is split 5-4, and more often in favor of conservative politics and big business, I am reluctant to allow optimism to enter into any part of my thinking.

 

Finally, I have to apologize because I have neglected this blog for a while.  Too much work, but I hope to change that for next year.  Yes, next year.  I will put this task on my list of New Year's resolutions and promise to be better (and more regular) in 2013.  Until then, forgive my lack of attention and . . .
