According to the Supreme Court's docket, four separate letters have been filed requesting depublication of Walsh v. IKON Office Solutions, Inc., 148 Cal.App.4th 1440 (2007). One of the depublication requests was filed last Friday by yours truly. No petition for review has been filed.
As explained in my two prior posts, the opinion adds nothing to class certification jurisprudence and therefore does not meet the standards for publication of Rule of Court 8.1105(c). Worse, the opinion contains language that contradicts the Supreme Court's holdings in Sav-on and Lockheed, and that could lead to misuse of the opinion as precedent, especially if the language is quoted out of context. The latter point is the basis for my depublication request.
UPDATE: On July 11, 2007, the Supreme Court denied the depublication requests.
