I'm coming up on a particularly busy period at work and am therefore putting the blog on hiatus once again. You can always reach me at my office by phone (415-788-4220) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will interrupt the hiatus for significant events of interest (such as the Ninth Circuit's Dukes v. Wal-Mart ruling or any ruling on the Tobacco rehearing petition).
One thing I hope to follow is trial courts' application of the Tobacco case. If you learn of any trial-level rulings (state or federal) addressing Tobacco, please forward them. I can post them online for everyone's benefit, as I did back in 2004 when the trial courts started ruling on the Prop. 64 retroactivity question. I will probably interrupt my hiatus to do this if I receive copies of orders. Thanks!
