Garrett Filetti
Managing Editor
Oak Harbor, Washington

What do you do as Managing Editor?
I manage and I edit, as “President of Production.” I plan the production schedule and oversee the first half of the “production process” from style edits by the Production Editors to substance edits by the Senior Editors, to cite checking by the Junior Associates. I also edit below the line and coordinate with professional authors that are writing for the law review.

What has been your favorite class?
It’s a tie between Employment Discrimination with Corbett and US Foreign Affairs with Sullivan.

What is the last thing you recorded on TV?
I don’t have cable so …. Nothing. I know, I know, but I pay for Netflix and Amazon Prime instead.

What is your favorite book?
Anything written by Steven King really. If I had to be more specific, I’d say the Dark Tower series.

What is your favorite movie?
This is totally random but – Big Fish.

What three items would you take on a deserted island?
A bottle of wine – so I can drink it and then use it to send a message in a bottle. Maybe someone will find it and come rescue me. A bucket, or something to catch rain in for water, and a book so I’ll have something to do while I wait on a rescue team.

Which of your five senses is strongest?
Well, it’s definitely not sight.

If you had a warning label, what would it say?
Caution: Worries About Everything

How many pillows do you sleep with?
Three, plus the one that belongs to my cat

What do you prefer: the Civil Code or the Common Law?
Common law (don’t tell C.J.!)
