Butit happened at the JusticeWilliam J. Brennan Jr. Lectureon State Courts and SocialJustice at the NYU School ofLaw. The Honorable JudithS. Kaye, Chief Judge of theState of New York, introducedCalifornia’s Chief Justice, TheHonorable Ronald M. George,by drawing a parallel betweenthe singer, once described as a“continuous whirl of motion,”and George, who she said isthe “hardest working man inthe court business.”The 11th Annual BrennanLecture, co-sponsored by IJAand the Brennan Center forJustice on January 26, 2005,capped off the four-day meeting of the Conference of ChiefJustices in New York. In histalk, “Challenges Facing anIndependent Judiciary,” ChiefJustice George argued that “bycreating a stronger judicialidentity, state courts can bettermaintain their independence injudicial decision-making.” Theaudience included more than20 judges from state courts oflast resort.Since 1972, California’s courtshave been the largest court system in the western world, surpassing in size even the federalcourt system. In 1996, Georgebecame Chief Justice of the state,and within two years, he hadvisited every one of its trial andappellate courts. Finding thataccess to and quality of justicevaried vastly, he identified threepriorities for the judicial branch:shifting court funding from thelocal to the state level; consolidating the dual-level trial courts;and improving court facilities.
The 2006 Brennan LectureThe Brennan Lectures are published by the New York University Law Review. TheTwelfth Annual Brennan Lecture will be delivered by The Honorable Randall T.Shepard, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Indiana, on February 28, 2006. AllIJA members and alumni are invited to attend.Previous Brennan Lecturers1995Hon. Judith S. Kaye, Chief Judge, Court of Appeals of the State of New York1996 Hon. Stewart G. Pollock, Associate Justice, Supreme Court of New Jersey1997Hon. Stanley Mosk, Associate Justice, Supreme Court of California1998 Hon. Ellen Ash Peters, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Connecticut1999 Hon. George Bundy Smith, Associate Judge, Court of Appeals of theState of New York2000 Hon. Shirley S.

Marshall, Chief Justice, Supreme Judicial Courtof Massachusetts2005 Hon. Ronald M. George, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of CaliforniaFirst, George determined that bettercoordination among the courts and between the courts and state agencies wasessential in order to provide the publicwith better services, such as additionalinterpreters to handle the more than 100languages spoken in California courts.In 1997, the judicial branch convincedthe state legislature to shift the responsibility of funding state courts from thecounties to the state. A mechanism wasnow in place to ensure continuity andequal access to the courts statewide sothat the state Judicial Council can assess the needs of local courts and distribute money accordingly.Then, in 1998, the legislature passeda constitutional amendment to unifythe municipal and superior courts tocreate a more effective system. By 2001,the number of trial courts in Californiafell from 220 to 58. This change allowedfor a more efficient use of resources andincreased adaptability on the trial courtlevel to the changing needs of the state.Finally, in 2002, the ownership of courtfacilities was transferred from the counties to the state government, with themanagement overseen by the judicialbranch. Many counties, faced with difficulties in funding schools and other socialservices, had made the maintenance ofcourt facilities a low priority. As a result,according to George, “Our temples of justice include many buildings that wouldbe unable to withstand even a moderateearthquake. Courtrooms located in trailers, and structures with toxic mold, falling asbestos tiles, and peeling lead paintmake the courthouse a dangerous placeto work or to litigate one’s case.” With the2002 legislation, these facilities are nolonger a burden on the counties, but havebecome a state-wide responsibility.According to George, these changes, aswell as regular meetings with the legislative and judicial branch and a yearly stateof the judiciary address to the other twobranches of government, will help the judiciary take its place as a co-equal branchof government. With this, the Californiajudiciary will achieve a stronger institutional identity and independence. Whilethese initiatives have not always beengreeted with enthusiasm by every judge,the outcome has been increased access tothe courts, improved services, and overall better administration of justice. “Wework with words and persuasion, not withthe power to appropriate or legislate,”George concluded. “We shall be measuredin the end by how well we perform ourconstitutional function of providing fairJudge Robert S. Smith (IJA Alum, New York Court of Appeals) and Professor Oscar G. Chase(IJA Executive Co-Director) at the 2005 Brennan Lecture.

Scheindlin Delivers Talk for Workshopon Employment Law for Federal JudgesAccording to the New York Times,The Honorable Shira Scheindlinof the U.S. District Court for theSouthern District of New York“has been called witty, sarcastic, nononsense, eminently fair, eminently unfair, brilliant and antigovernment.” Shehas decided high-profile cases involvingNational Football League draft rulesand a magazine ad about former NewYork Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Her recent work on behalf of the federal rulemaking process, addressing electronicdiscovery resulting from newer technologies like email and databases, broughtScheindlin to the two-day Workshop onEmployment Law for Federal Judges.The annual workshop, co-sponsoredby IJA, the Federal Judicial Center, andthe Law School’s Center for Labor andEmployment Law, welcomed 50 federaltrial and appellate judges from aroundthe country to discuss such topics as casemanagement, wage/hour litigation, evidence and experts, mediation, sex and agediscrimination, and jury instructions.As the luncheon speaker and part of apanel on electronic discovery, Scheindlindiscussed her opinions in Zubulake v.UBS Warburg and several proposed rulechanges intended to deal better withelectronic information. In Zubulake,Scheindlin explored on how courts shouldhandle the accessibility of different data,which party in a lawsuit should pay forretrieving “inaccessible” data, what todo when data is destroyed, and when toapply sanctions. “What are [employers]required to preserve?” asked Scheindlin.“What is the scope?” These questions willultimately be determined by case law, butshe cautioned judges not to issue overlybroad preservation orders.Professor Samuel Estreicher, Executive Co-Director of IJA and Director ofthe Labor Center, said, “We have to becareful of the cost of discovery requestsdriving the litigation.”Top: (left to right) Hon. Rosemary Barkett (U.S. Court of Appeals, Cir. 11), Professor Samuel Estreicher(IJA Executive Co-Director), Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin (U.S. District Court, SDNY); Bottom: Panel onEvidence Issues/Use of Experts, (left to right) Robert B. Fitzpatrick (Robert B. Fitzpatrick, PLLC), Hon.Denny Chin (U.S. District Court, SDNY), and Robert S. Whitman (Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe)In her address, Scheindlin said theproposed changes to the Federal Rulesof Civil Procedure, which will becomeeffective in December 2006 if no substantial modifications are made, are neededbecause electronically stored information has generated unique problems. Itsvolume, the dynamic nature in which itis automatically created and deleted, itsdifficulty to delete, and the importanceof the software used to view it are someof the distinct dilemmas that courts needto address, Scheindlin observed.The Wage-Hour Litigation panel alsofocused on a novel development in employment law: collective actions. Unlike
class action suits, where eligible plaintiffs are included unless they opt out,individuals in a collective action mustopt-in to participate in the litigation.In employment law, such cases typically involve unpaid overtime under theFair Labor Standards Act, said AdamKlein, an Outten & Golden partner. PatRodenhausen, a regional attorney withthe U.S. Department of Labor, said thatwhile collective actions are known topractitioners, judges tend to be unfamiliar with the actions because 80 to 90 percent of the cases are settled privately.In a dialogue on evidence and experts, The Honorable Denny Chin ofthe U.S. District Court for the SouthernDistrict of New York summarized twokey U.S. Supreme Court decisions:McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Green (1973)and Desert Palace, Inc. v. Costa (2003).In mixed-motive discrimination cases,where some of an employers’ actionsmay be legal and others illegal, thethree-pronged McDonnell Douglas test,which Chin said really has eight steps,is “too cumbersome.” In Desert Palace,the Supreme Court held that direct evidence is not needed to uphold mixedmotive claims. Robert Fitzpatrick, whorepresents primarily plaintiffs, wentfurther: “I think the Court is trying tosay we need to put the pedal to the floorto end discrimination in this country.”Panelists encouraged the judges in theaudience to give their rulings in severalhypothetical employment law scenarios,including a woman alleging sexual harassment claims that she has sufferedweight loss, hair loss, and sleepless nights.“Should the judge allow a court-orderedmental exam?” asked Fitzpatrick. Mostjudges agreed they would not, particularly given the difficulty of proving sleeplessness or connecting hair and weightloss to the harassment. They also debatedwhether they would alter their decisionsif an expert was going to testify that thewoman was experiencing post-traumaticstress disorder.Moving from how to rule to how to resolve, the workshop’s first day concludedwith a panel on mediation, “A techniquethat you all need to learn to master as away of clearing your dockets and serv-ing justice,” Estreicher said. Employmentlaw cases seem particularly conduciveto mediation conducted by judges. Forone, these cases often drag on for yearsand are hard to win, said Daniel Kaiser,a partner with Kaiser Saurborn & Mairwho represents plaintiffs. “Mediation isan effective tool to mediate that disproportion between cost and benefit,” hesaid. Because these cases are so emotional for plaintiffs, Kaiser said, lawyerswant their clients to hear what the lawis and what is realistically possible fordamages, so that they have a clear picture from the court about what happensin typical discrimination cases.The Honorable Loretta Preska of theU.S. District Court for the SouthernDistrict of New York presented a stepby-step sequence for her mediations,from talking about the facts to discussing resolutions and monetary awards.“If one party says no [to a proposed settlement], then I tell them to go back tothe barricades, and I don’t disclose theiranswer,” she added.When defense lawyer Zachary Fasman,partner with Paul Hastings Janofsky &Walker, has clients who are resisting agood settlement, he would tell them to remember that decision two years later whenhe would be prepping them for trial. nTop: (left to right) Hon.
