  • Professor Richard Zitrin in The New York Times: Last year, I was asked to help draft a California bill outlawing secrecy in sexual predator cases, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law. Yet as your article notes, we got only half a loaf. The bill applies to filed complaints, not deals cut before litigation, like R. Kelly’s and Harvey Weinstein’s. These “hush money” payoffs are still secret except in New Jersey. We must all do better. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/02/opinion/letters/sex-abuse-secret-settlements.html

  • Prof. Matt Coles & Hastings OutLaw reps with a signed copy of the original rainbow flag! 🏳️‍🌈

    The story: Not long after creating the rainbow flag, Gilbert Baker had a problem. The group running an early community center told him that since he’d worked on it at the Center, the flag belonged to the group, which was going to apply to copyright and trademark it. He went to see Matt Coles, now a Professor at UC Hastings Law, then a recent Hastings grad who’d hung out a shingle on Castro Street. Coles assumed Baker wanted the rights for himself. No, Baker said, he didn’t want anyone to own the flag; it should belong to the world. Coles took the case, and succeeded in getting the group to back off with a couple of letters. Baker couldn’t pay, but Coles didn’t mind since the point was to make the flag available to everyone. But about 30 years later, Baker showed up at Coles’ office at the ACLU in New York with a gift: a signed copy of the original flag, with all 8 colors. It’s in Professor Coles’ office at UC Hastings now.

  • “San Francisco has long served as the world’s leading locale for technology startups, so it should come as no surprise that legal tech startups often find their home base in The Golden City. As a result of the gold rush that has produced an abundance of legal tech startups, UC Hastings College of the Law saw their position right in the heart of San Francisco as an opportunity to collaborate with these startups and prepare their students for 21st Century lawyering. Headed by Alice Armitage, Drew Amerson, and Rebecca Siegel, they call it LexLab, ‘an innovation hub for emerging legal technologies,’ and it may just be the best idea yet for legal technology and innovation in law schools.”

"Social change comes from people stepping up and taking responsibility even when people say it can't be done. We now have a case that I am confident will not only make its way to the Supreme Court, but can win there." The lawsuit, Juliana v.

  • It took roughly two decades, but earlier this spring the implementation of the settlement of Holocaust-era class actions against Swiss banks was completed.

    The final step was the issuance of the special master’s final report on the settlement process. The voluminous document highlights the significant role Academic Dean Morris Ratner played both during the historic litigation and in the ensuing settlement process. It also extensively cites Dean Ratner’s compelling scholarship about Nazi-era litigation.
