The practice of family law is complicated at best and antithetical to a “one size fits all” approach. When a family determines to move forward separately—dividing assets, finances, and determining child custody—there is always a high level of stress and oftentimes hostility, making successful case resolutions challenging to reach and mediation difficult to conduct. This is where experience and knowledge in the field is imperative. With a desire to assist those engaged in the practice of family law, both practitioners and judges, Judge Hank Goldberg has written a comprehensive and informative practical resource to address all major components of these cases, and guide professionals to successful outcomes. After six years of research and widespread utilization of these materials within the Los Angeles County family law courts, this book presents findings and conclusions that concisely identify the legal elements of California family law doctrines. Step by step analysis is provided for the resolution of these legal issues. The materials also contain model orders covering all major issues arising in courts on a daily basis and the legal authority for those orders. Of course, there are no jury instructions in family law; and this is probably why no systematic effort has been made to state California family law doctrines in a format similar to jury instructions, concisely yet with precision. Until now. This book can also be used to create discovery plans, plan direct and cross-examination, and to issue or stipulate to orders and judgments. It contains scripts for utilization by judges and attorneys in court and offers practice pointers and tips for litigation and settlement. For any attorney or judge engaged in family law within the Stat e of California, this unique insiders’ guide is an outstanding reference tool.

Senate Bill 863 (SB 863) and Senate Bill 899 (SB 899) have taken the California workers' compensation industry by storm, revolutionizing the way permanent disability is determined along with changes in apportionment of disability. Now that the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment is the gold standard as the first step to determine permanent disability in California, the claims, legal, and judicial participants in the workers' compensation system need their own guidance on the use of the AMA Guides in these cases. The Lawyer's Guide to the AMA Guides and California Workers' Compensation, by Robert G. Rassp, is the only practical guide to help you calculate and understand permanent disability ratings under SB 899 and the AMA Guides Workers' compensation claims involving the AMA Guides will emerge that hinge on the proper use, misuse, or under-use of the Guides and on the causation of permanent disability under the apportionment statutes and developing case law. The Lawyer's Guide to the AMA Guides and California Workers' Compensation will assist you in the proper use of the AMA Guides and thus enable you to determine whether a medical report constitutes substantial evidence.

During the past decade there has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it have come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge of understanding these data has led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are often expressed with different terminology. This book describes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are given, with a liberal use of color graphics. It should be a valuable resource for statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book’s coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervised learning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification trees and boosting---the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in the original, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression & path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for “wide” data (p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman are professors of statistics at Stanford University. They are prominent researchers in this area: Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling software and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves and surfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap. Friedman is the co-inventor of many data-mining tools including CART, MARS, projection pursuit and gradient boosting.
