In his latest Daily Journal column, Manatt Appellate Partner Benjamin Shatz provided his annual year in review, in which he described 2022 as the “most ‘interesting’ appellate year in modern times.”
Shatz discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic is still impacting all appellate courts as well as the remarkable personnel turnover in the appellate world, possibly part of the “Great Resignation.” He noted important U.S. Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit developments from the past year—including the Court’s Dobbs opinion and the Ninth Circuit Rule 32-1(f) about how to count words in visual images used in briefs—and also cited other cases of particular appellate interest.
