San Francisco partner Don Willenburg will be a co-speaker at an MCLE program on the topic of "How Reid v. Google Will Affect Your Summary Judgment, Employment Discrimination, and Appellate Practices." The November 17 program is being provided by the Appellate Practice and Labor and Employment Sections of the Bar Association of San Francisco, and takes place at the BASF Conference Center in San Francisco.
Mr. Willenburg will address the impact of Reid v. Google on virtually all appeals from summary judgments in California, not just those in the employment context where this case arose. He will discuss (1) how Reid affects discovery and summary judgment practice, (2) how Reid changes appellate review of evidentiary questions on summary judgment, and (3) how Reid rejects, but does not quite eliminate, Biljac. His co-presenter, an employment attorney who worked on the case, will discuss how Reid changes employment discrimination law in California.
The program has been approved for 1.5 hours of Appellate Specialization MCLE credit. For more information, or to register for the event, please click here.
