The Daily Journal quoted Manatt’s Benjamin Shatz, co-chair of the firm’s Appellate practice, for an article on the Supreme Court of California’s decision to abolish the depublication of lower court appellate opinions once cases have been granted high court review.
"This is probably something that should have been done a long time ago," said Shatz. “People would find these cases and would have trouble citing them and would have to pretend they didn't exist. This makes things a bit more above board. It allows a little more flexibility on how lawyers can present their case."
