In Friday's article in the San Diego Daily Transcript, blog reader Michael Mallow of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP was quoted as saying that "to a great extent the impact has already been felt and adjustments have already been made by those pursing unfair competition claims." I think that's probably true, and I'd like to hear from other people about what they've experienced. Please post a comment or drop me an email if you know about a UCL case in which any of the following has happened:
(1) A UCL complaint has been amended to add a new, affected plaintiff;Personally, I know of at least one case in which the parties stipulated to a formal stay, and of another case in which no formal stay has been entered, but everyone has sort of tacitly agreed to await the Supreme Court's ruling. I'd be particularly interested to hear about cases in which a trial court has granted leave to amend. If I receive copies of trial court orders, I'll put them up.
(2) A UCL complaint has been amended to add class action allegations;
(3) The trial court has stayed a case pending Supreme Court resolution of the Prop. 64 retroactivity question;
(4) The parties have stipulated to a stay pending Supreme Court action;
(5) The parties have tacitly agreed to take a wait-and-see approach in a pending case.
