Policy Favoring Decision on the Merits Didn’t Preclude Striking Late-Filed Opposition—C.A.

Wednesday’s unpublished opinion comes in a case where a student’s battle with California State University, Northridge (“CSUN”) was triggered by her professor not immediately responding to an equivocal request in a late night email seeking more time to turn in a three-page paper that was due at midnight, allegedly resulting in an anxiety attack. That incident occurred more than nine years ago, with the litigation repeatedly delayed by virtue of deadlines not being met, including the appeal being dismissed, then reinstated, three times. -- Metropolitan News-Enterprise

Tristen J. Winger Talks So Help Me Todd & The Impact of Insecure

My thing is, try it. Because even with mechanical engineering, I tried. I went to Cal State Northridge. I was there for three years. I just did not love it, but I thought it was what I had to do because it was something that my mom and other family members were like, “You need to get a job. Engineering is it. This is the next big thing.” -- TV Fanatic

Born and raised in South Central, Los Angeles, Tristen J. Winger discovered his love for acting at a young age.

Growing up he attended the Amazing Grace Conservatory (AGC) co-founded by Wendy Raquel Robinson, where he was able to further hone his craft in theater, bringing characters to life on stage. Tristen went on to attend the King Drew Magnet High School of Medicine and Science. There he became friends with Issa Rae, the woman would eventually give him his first big break with The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. While Tristen originally thought he would go into the medical field, even studying science, math, and engineering at California State University Northridge, but the arts kept calling his name. While working at the Apple store he landed one of his first big jobs on Insecure, and he has been booking back-to-back film and television projects ever since. -- Chilled Magazine
