Yet another good reason to have live-client, robust civil clinics. Because sometimes you get to argue the case in front of the California Supreme Court.
Congratulations to Donna Ryu (who's on the adjunct clinical faculty at Hastings) for both taking the case and for prevailing in the California Supremes.
P.S. - Arguing in the California Supremes is much more fun than doing my taxes, which I've yet to finish. Yikes.
