Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, the national law and consulting firm, announced today that Lisa Specht was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Music Center. Ms. Specht, a partner in the firm's Government & Public Policy Division, will be cochairing the Operations Committee and will serve on the Music Center Executive Committee.

“Lisa brings vast knowledge and experience that will strengthen and enhance our efforts to support and enrich the Center,” said Music Center Chairman John Emerson. “Lisa provides a unique professional perspective to the board and the business and decisions it undertakes. In addition, her work at the committee level has already proven to be invaluable.”

“One of Manatt's core values is to contribute meaningfully to the communities we serve,” said William T. Quicksilver, Manatt's Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner. “This is another example of Lisa's longtime civic involvement in our city, and we are very proud of her and support her efforts.”

Ms. Specht has been involved in numerous civic assignments, including chairing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission and serving on the City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Commission, as well as serving as Chief Counsel for the 2000 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles. Ms. Specht has been recognized as one of the “Top 100 Influential Lawyers in California” and is included in Who's Who of American Women and The Best Lawyers in America. She currently serves as Trustee and Executive Board member for Pitzer College (Claremont Colleges), Director and Executive Board member for Town Hall Los Angeles and the Central City Association.

The Music Center is one of the three largest performing arts centers in the nation, and one of the world's premier cultural organizations. Located in downtown Los Angeles, the Music Center is home to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Each year, the Music Center welcomes more than 1.3 million people to performances by its four internationally renowned performing arts companies: The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Center Theatre Group, Los Angeles Opera and Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, the national law and consulting firm, announced today that former State Senator Martha Escutia has been appointed to serve on the Commission for Impartial Courts Task Force on Public Information and Education. Sen. Escutia, a member of Manatt's Government & Regulatory Policy Division, was appointed to the Commission by the Honorable Ronald M. George, Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court and Chair of the Judicial Council.

As a member of the Commission, Sen. Escutia will work with other former Senators, highly regarded judges, court administrators and attorneys to ensure that the public in California has access to an impartial judicial system that is fair and accountable. Earlier this year, Sen. Escutia was honored by the Judicial Council of California for her role in bringing landmark reforms to the state's judicial system.

“I am thankful for Martha's willingness to continue her enormous contributions to the administration of justice in our state,” said Chief Justice George. “Her commitment, knowledge and understanding of the state's judicial system will be an asset to the Commission.”

The Commission was formed in August 2007, to focus on the manner in which judges are selected, retained, and removed from office, which can have a major impact on the independence of the judiciary. As a member of the Task Force on Public Information and Education, Sen. Escutia will evaluate and make periodic reports and final recommendations regarding proposals to improve public information and education concerning the judiciary.

“Martha is a perfect choice to join this important Commission,” said George Kieffer, Chair of Manatt's Government & Regulatory Policy Division. “She has a deep commitment to the judicial process and to the State of California, and I know that she will bring a wealth of vision and expertise to her new role.”

During her tenure in the Legislature, Sen. Escutia held key leadership positions, including the first Latina Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the first woman Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee, and Chair of the California Legislative Women's Caucus. As a freshman legislator, Sen. Escutia was Chair of the Senate Health Committee, and was also ranking Democrat on the Assembly Health Committee. She served as Chair of the Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities and Communications and was the first woman Chair of the 27-member-strong California Latino Legislative Caucus. Sen. Escutia also successfully led the effort to bring full employment status to trial court interpreters. She is author of the Court Facilities and Construction Act, and the Family Law In Pro Per Information System.
