11:30 am -Noon Check In and Bring-Your-Own-Lunch noon - 1:00 pm PresentationProgram:
In less than six months this year, the California Supreme Court unanimously decided five Anti-SLAPP cases. And it still had time to hand down significant decisions on local police powers, third party beneficiaries in contracts, pleading class actions, waiving governmental immunity, tax authority of charter cities, and economic loss damages. We will discuss each of these and what the justices were so eager to instruct us about Anti-SLAPP.
John Wierzbicki, a California lawyer and Director of the Witkin Legal Institute, will present on the most significant civil cases decided by the California Supreme Court in 2019 as selected by the Institute’s legal editors.
John heads up the educational activities of the Institute, which creates and sponsors legal programs and professional activities throughout California. He also manages the team of attorneys and other professionals responsible for the Witkin Library: Summary of California Law, 11th ed., California Procedure, 5th ed., California Evidence, 5th ed., and California Criminal Law, 4th ed. John writes for the Institute on constitutional law, contracts, civil trials and taxation.
Before his appointment, John was the editorial director for some of Thomson Reuters' most prestigious U.S. legal publications, including Black’s Law Dictionary, American Law Reports (ALR), American Jurisprudence, and Corpus Juris Secundum, and he managed its author contracts and relationships group. He has also been a legal author and was in private legal practice in San Jose, California. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley (B.A.), the University of Virginia (M.A.), and Georgetown University Law Center (J.D.).
