1 Winter Edition 2009 Vol. 18, No. 2 Message from the President by James M. Garner A Time of Change in the Practice of Law; Be Prepared One thing never changes: What we do as lawyers changes constantly. The December bankruptcy seminar presented by our Chapter certainly supported that truism. The seminar was planned last Spring to be a basic 101 tutorial, a result of my early experiences in practice as a young lawyer in Bankruptcy court at which time I longed for such a tutorial. A seminar we planned six months ago to serve 30 attendees was attended by well over 65 attendees, younger and older lawyers alike attended. And, as an aside, we extend a special thank you to Judge Jerry Brown, Judge Elizabeth Magner, the Hon. Marla Hamilton, Brian Capitelli, Elwood Cahill, and Erin Arnold for their work on what was a very successful and informative event. Those who attended stated that the seminar was very good and prepared them for issues in Bankruptcy Court where many expected to practice for the first time in the months ahead. And as we now know, the law practice in bankruptcy, foreclosures, and other similar legal areas is presently and continues to be booming, even in New Orleans, which has been identified as one of the 10 cities in which to ride out the recession. Hurricane Katrina certainly prepared us to expect the unexpected and adapt to change in the legal terrain. What we all experienced in 2005 also reminded us not to take anything for granted. One thing that 20 years of practice has taught me, is to change and evolve, or find yourself with nothing to do. A year ago, had someone said that Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Wachovia, and Washington Mutual would cease to exist as we knew them in less than a year; that Heller Ehrman, Thelen Reid and Thacher Proffitt & Wood would dissolve; or that the New Orleans legal market would be considered bustling as compared to cities like Charlotte, Seattle, New York, or others of like size, I would have recommended he or she consider help. Yet all of these events have come to pass. And much like the demise of Enron and WorldCom impacted law firms in Texas and Mississippi, what was a sterling practice and client one day to law firms who practiced banking and mortgage backed securities law, was nonexistent the next. And the current issues not only affect the demise of clients of a firm, but even firms themselves. According to news reports, in the case of Heller Erhman, its life blood was a $500 million line of credit. In addition to the loss of some large litigation, the inability or decision of lenders not to renew that line of credit led to the demise of a San Francisco based institution. In my legal career we have not experienced what we now potentially face and what many others, particularly outside of Louisiana, are facing. And when I had lunch recently with one of our own legal institutions who has practiced for over 40 years, I asked him, has New Orleans ever seen a real downturn in the legal business? After a moment of thought, he said the early 1970s were not very kind to law firms. And when I asked this legal stalwart how the better lawyers handled that time, he stated, Do what you do best; do it every day; don t be afraid of change, but embrace it. So as we embark into this historic time, perhaps ironically blessed as a result of our experiences with Hurricane Katrina, change will be the measure of the day and the one thing we as all lawyers will confront.

2 The Honorable Antonin Scalia, Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Becomes Honorary Lifetime Fellow of the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association accepted the New Orleans Chapter s nomination of Justice Antonin Scalia for Honorary Life Fellow in the Foundation. Justice Scalia accepted his nomination on October 13, 2008, at a brunch hosted by the New Orleans Chapter at Galatorie s. Over one hundred Chapter members and Judges were on hand for the presentation to Justice Scalia of his certificate of Honorary Life Fellow and Foundation pin by the Foundation President, David Rosenbaum of Phoenix, and the Chairman of the Fellows, David Guerry of Baton Rouge. Upon acceptance, Justice Scalia spoke to the audience briefly about the Fourth Branch of the federal government. Judge Martin L.C. Feldman was also honored and recognized for his 25 years of service on the bench. Justice Scalia is the second United States Supreme Court Justice to accept this honor from the Foundation. Justice Beyer was nominated by the Puerto Rico Chapter and became an Honorary Life Fellow in The Foundation s mission is to: 1) Promote and support legal research and education; 2) Advance the science of jurisprudence; 3) Facilitate the administration of justice; and 4) Foster improvement in the practice of Federal law. The prestigious Fellows program of the Foundation in which a person is nominated and accepted and who pledges at least $1,500 over ten years has now grown to over 180 members and the annual Fellows luncheon and dinner programs have become anticipated events. Justice Antonin Scalia Grants in recent years from the Foundation demonstrate the importance of its efforts. The Foundation helped co-sponsor a national conference on judicial independence led by Justice Sandra O Connor. It funded the FBA s White Paper on Judicial Education. Its Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Fund provided money to support legal assistance and professional support for those affected by the storm. The Foundation has also provided numerous scholarships for law school students and for children of federal lawyers. Only one year since its inception, the Foundation s one-percent set-aside program now has half a dozen local FBA Chapter participants and their ranks are growing.

The insurer settled the claims against it.
