    Asked by The News Tribune to look at the lawsuit, University of Washington law professor Steve Calandrillo said the county will need to demonstrate that it didn’t receive the substantial benefit of the medical services that it was promised. “Pierce County would need to show that Conmed was in ‘material breach of contract’ in order for the county to avoid paying for services under the contract,” he said.

    Some people might be enjoying their extra hour of sleep at this time of the year. But then people might as well spend an extra amount of time thinking of their safety on the road as more people are said to be killed by this time of the year. (10/30/16)

    Both Schwartz [former traffic commissioner of New York City] and Steve Calandrillo, a professor of law at the University of Washington, advocate for extending daylight saving time to be year round. “Four hundred lives would be saved if we went to year-round daylight saving time,” Calandrillo said. “Darkness in the evening hours is much more deadly than in the morning hours—there are more drivers on the road and more children playing outdoors.” Smith’s study notes that crime rates fall during periods of more light in the evening. Calandrillo says he has warned legislators who are considering moving their state to standard time that eliminating the week of fatalities that they're missing the greater risk. "Standard time is far more deadly than daylight saving time. You want to put sunlight when people are awake." (3/11/16)

    Assemblyman Kansen Chu's proposal to switch California to standard time year-round recognizes that the biannual clock switch is bad for our sleep cycles, but the opposite solution -- year-round daylight saving time (DST) -- is far superior to year-round standard time. (3/3/16)

    While some dislike the seasonal shifts of Daylight Saving Time (DST) for the minor inconvenience to their sleep cycles and busy schedules, there’s a more serious side to the scheme: the loss of an hour of afternoon sunlight when it ends—as it does this weekend—may increase the likelihood of traffic accidents.

    Extending daylight saving time year-round would save lives, reduce crime, save energy and stop Americans from losing sleep each time we switch our clocks.  (3/6/14)

    Steve Calandrillo has been trying for years to convince congress to switch to DST all year long. He argues that tacking an hour of light on to the end of winter days would save about 400 lives and oodles of injuries each year that result from traffic accidents, ("there's a three fold increase in traffic fatalities after dark"), dramatically slash street crime (criminals prefer working evenings and are rarely early risers), and save energy (in most places).
