The Insider's Guide to Success in the Southern District: Everything You Always Wanted To Know, But Were Afraid To Ask

Hon. Irma E. Gonzalez
Chief Judge, U.S. District Court

Hon. Janis L. Sammartino
Judge, U.S. District Court

Hon. Anthony J. Battaglia
Judge, U.S. District Court

Panel Moderator
Hon. M. Margaret McKeown
Circuit Judge, U.S. 9th Cir. Ct. of Appeals

Join Chief Judge Irma Gonzalez, Judge Janis Sammartino, and Judge Anthony Battaglia for a candid discussion of how attorneys can best help their clients (and themselves) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. Moderator Judge Margaret McKeown of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will lead the discussion based on actual questions submitted by ABTL members. Get the judges' perspectives on issues ranging from supplemental disclosures under Rule 26 to motions in limine, scheduling orders to tentative rulings. Judge Gonzalez' role as Chief Judge, Judge Sammartino's prior experience as a Superior Court judge, and Judge Battaglia's prior experience as a Magistrate Judge provide a unique insight into common policies and practices in the Southern District, key differences between Federal and State court practices, and the complementary roles of the Magistrate and District Court judges. Whether you practice in the District Court exclusively or only occasionally, this is a program you cannot afford to miss!
