After preparing CLE materials on Washington state employment law over the past 25 years, it seemed to me that appellate decisions were increasing in length. 1
To determine if this was in fact the case or if I was merely
getting impatient and cranky, I compared recent volumes of
the Washington Reporter and Washington Appellate Reports
with volumes of the same reporters published in the year I was
admitted to practice—1974.
