    Any news on when the new version of the Getches Case book will be ready for publication? Just wondering. I continue to watch the blog with interest. Thanks for the continuing references to excellent background materials. If I didn’t have to work, I would love to take your course. As it is, I can still read the cases and have a look at the sylabus. I hope that’s OK, in other words I hope you don’t mind.
