Next week, on January 29 and 30, 2007, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two pending class action cases:
Monday, January 29, 1:00 p.m.: Fireside Bank v. Superior Court, no. S139171. This is the "one-way intervention" case, Fireside Bank v. Superior Court, 133 Cal.App.4th 742 (2005) (Sixth Appellate District). My prior posts on this case are here and here.
Tuesday, January 30, 9:00 a.m.:Alan v. American Honda Motor Co. Inc., no. S137238. This case addresses the appealability of orders denying class certification. See Alan v. American Honda Motor Corp., 131 Cal.App.4th 886 (2005) (Second Appellate District, Division Three). My original post on Alan is here.
These arguments will take place in Sacramento at the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building. Please let me know if you're planning to attend one or both of the arguments and would like to email a written report to be posted on the blog.
