Congratulations to Recent Boalt Hall Graduate Carolyn Zabrycki,

whose student article (Toward a Definition of “Testimonial”: How Autopsy Reports Do Not Embody the Qualities of a Testimonial Statement, 96 Cal. L. Rev. 1093 (2008)) was cited three times -- and seemingly significantly relied on -- by Justice Kennedy's dissent in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts.

A feather in Zabrycki's cap, and (I hope) an encouragement to other students writing student articles.
