UPDATES: Thanks to the editor of Mealey's California Section 17200 Report for sending a copy of the opening brief on the merits (filed 12/15/06). Also, thanks to the blog reader who forwarded a copy of the answer brief on the merits (filed 01/30/07). Two other amicus briefs have been submitted, by the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights and the Civil Justice Association of California. I do not yet have copies of those. Also, the Supreme Court has granted six requests for extensions of time for other amici curiae to file their briefs. Those briefs are due on April 12 and 23, 2007. Finally, today the Supreme Court granted the Pacific Legal Foundation's application for permission to file its amicus brief. The Pacific Legal Foundation was the first to file an such an application. I anticipate that the rest of the applications will be granted apace.
