I am finally able to provide a copy of my article published in the September 2007 issue of Santa Barbara Lawyer. The article, which grew out of this blog post, is an examination of the historical and existing rules regarding the appealability of an order denying a statutory motion under Code of Civil Procedure section 663 to vacate the judgment and enter new judgment. It also proposes a resolution of the confused law on that issue. (Just in case the Supreme Court was looking for my advice.)
I know, I know. Geeksville.
The magazine still is not available online, but I scanned the article and have posted it for download. Click on this title of the article to access the PDF copy of An Appealing Vacation . . . of Judgment: City of Los Angeles v. Glair May Force a Clarification of Appellate Jurisdiction.
By the way, PDFs of a few other past issues of Santa Barbara Lawyer are available here.
