Retired Judge James Warren presided over two days of testimony in the Reggae lawsuit, Mateel v People Productions LLC & Tom Dimmick today and yesterday. So far only Dimmick has testified, and he's not done yet.
While on a break, Warren mentioned some of the significant cases he worked on while on the bench in San Francisco: the notorious dog mauling case ( People v. Knoller and Noel ), the 2004 same-sex marriage cases and " re 101 California Street ," a suit against a gun manufacturer in connection with a crazed gunman who murdered eight people in an S.F. highrise.
