A Circuitous Route To Publication.
I posted about SingerLewak v. Gantman on July 31, August 31, and September 1, 2015. This is an interesting case discussing the so-called “public policy exception” that will sometimes justify review of an arbitral award by the superior court – though in the end, not in this case.
Previously, the Court of Appeal had ordered the case published in the morning, only to revoke the publication order in the afternoon, when it realized that the time to order publication had expired. The Justices then wrote a letter to the Supreme Court asking for publication. Yesterday, the Supreme Court ordered publication.
Ted Bacon, Mike Hensley, and Matt Hansen, my colleagues at AlvaradoSmith, represented SingerLewak, the appellant/plaintiff prevailing on the appeal. I was pleased to see publication was ordered, as I had written the letter to the Court of Appeal requesting publication.
