Thanks to the reader who notified me that on January 26, 2006, the Court of Appeal (Second Appellate District, Division One) granted the defendant's petition for a writ of supersedeas and ordered the appeal expedited in Estrada v. FedEx Ground Package System, Inc., nos. B187951 and B189031. This appellate proceeding challenges an order in which the trial court allowed a pre-Prop. 64 UCL judgment to stand, even though class certification had not been granted, because (a) the plaintiff was injured, (b) the other claims were certified, and (c) the UCL claim could easily have been certified, too, had the law required it. In other words, the trial court held that even if Prop. 64 applied, its requirements were, in effect, satisfied. My original post on the Estrada order is here. The Court of Appeal has ordered an expedited briefing schedule and has already set the matter for oral argument on July 26, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. before Justices Spencer, Mallano, and Vogel. If anyone from LA can attend, I'd love to receive a report. This promises to be a very interesting case.
