Chair's Note - 2015


     Happy New Year, Appellate Section members! The last fourteen
months have been quite remarkable for the Oregon appellate courts. The
Court of Appeals looks very different now than it did in 2013, and Chief
Judge Haselton tells us that the court has made major progress on its
backlog thanks to the addition of an entire new panel. While Judges
Devore, Lagesen, Tookey, Garrett, and Flynn have been settling in, we
have said a fond farewell to now-retired Judges Schuman and Wollheim.

     The Appellate Almanac has also been in transition. Instead of
publishing a paper almanac every other year, the Executive Committee
decided last year to move to an electronic format so that articles could be
published on a rolling basis. Alas, that transition has not gone quite as
smoothly as the transitions at the Court of Appeals. While the court has
been getting more done than ever, the almanac did not immediately
adapt to its new format and ended up pretty skinny. As Chair this year,
one of my goals is to really get the Appellate Almanac going in its new
format. We intend to have profiles posted of all of the judges on both
appellate courts by year end, as well as publish articles throughout the
year. The first article is in fact being posted today-Practice Tips from
the Oregon Supreme Court and Oregon Court of Appeals-for which
we very much thank Lisa Norris-Lampe and Lora Keenan.

     The Appellate Almanac presents an excellent opportunity for
publishing articles of interest to the appellate bar. If you would like to
contribute an article, please contact me (robyn.aoyagi@tonkon.com).

     The Executive Committee is looking forward to a great year. We
hope to see you at our CLEs, at the annual Fall Social, and, if you'd like,
on the pages of the Appellate Almanac. Looking forward to 2015!

                                    Robyn Ridler Aoyagi
