It has been a long time since I’ve posted. I apologize for that. That being said, I now only post for purposes of self-aggrandizement.
Drawing from work I’ve done on this blog, I entered the California Supreme Court Historical Society Student Writing Competition with a paper about an 1885 opium ordinance in Stockton, California. (I know, the topic has been done to death.)
The CSCHS saw it fit to select my paper as the top entry.
Here is the paper if you would like to read it:
It will be published in the 2011 volume of the Society’s annual journal, California Legal History.
Also, here is their announcement of the winners, including a “Which one doesn’t belong?” photo of me with Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye, Associate Justice Werdegar, Society President Dan Grunfeld and Board Member Selma Smith.
My thanks to the CSCHS, and to the gracious Justices.
