Everyone’s Reading These Opinions. Are You?

Ever wonder which court opinions your colleagues are most interested in? We've put together a list of the five opinions from the California Daily Opinion Service (covering the U.S. Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit, the California Supreme Court and the California Court of Appeal) in 2006 that have commanded the most reader requests on our sister Web site, Cal Law. They are:

4) Barefield v. Washington Mutual Bank, 06 C.D.O.S. 1045. Third District Court of Appeal, 06 C.D.O.S. 1045. ("Additional two days to statutory period for service of notice of summary judgment motion by overnight delivery service must be added to end of 75-day period, not beginning.")
