Greg May

Perhaps Chief Justice George had this proposal in mind when he convinced Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally last June not to introduce legislation to alter the rules for publication of opinions and/or to allow citation to unpublished opinions. The judiciary has argued that such a change would require too much additional work by the Court of Appeal -- work hours that needed to be kept open for this proposed change in death penalty review, perhaps.

Scott Graham (Cal Law editor)

Greg, that raises another interesting question: If the court of appeal were to issue death penalty opinions, could we expect that most would be unpublished?
