My colleague, Jessica Grant, is quoted in this article (subscription) in Monday's Daily Journal. The article reports that Judges Kramer and Munter will share the San Francisco Superior Court's complex litigation caseload:
Jessica Grant, a partner with class-action specialist Furth Lehmann & Grant, praised the decision to have Kramer and Munter jointly handle the cases, which can involve 50 lawyers and plaintiffs with divergent interests. "Having Kramer and Munter share duties will maximize the efficiency of complex litigation so it's a win/win for everyone and a really good solution."
The article does not say when the caseload-sharing will begin.
UPDATE: As a reader pointed out in the comments, we should not assume that the caseload-sharing arrangement is a done deal. The article does note that the court's executive committee voted unanimously in favor of the recommendation, but it still requires final approval from the Administrative Office of the Courts.
