Opinions

 

This collection of the Opinions of Justice Traynor spans his entire time on the bench. During those thirty years, Justice Traynor wrote over 900 superbly-crafted scholarly opinions that were widely influential throughout the United States.

In 1948, Justice Traynor authored Perez v. Sharp -- striking down a state ban on interracial marriage for the first time in the nation. Other notable cases include Escola v. Coca Cola Bottling Company and Greenman v. Yuba Power Products, Inc., in which Traynor modernized tort law with the creation of strict products liability.

The U.S. Supreme Court would use Traynor’s opinion in People v. Cahan as part of the rationale behind Mapp v. Ohio, disallowing the use of illegally obtained evidence at trial.

Justice Traynor’s Opinions have and will stand the test of time and are an excellent resource for researching California jurisprudence.
