In O'Brien, the Court of Appeal (Fourth Second Appellate District, Division Three) affirmed summary judgment in the defendant's favor, holding that the plaintiff lacked standing to assert UCL or CLRA claims because he did not suffer injury in fact as a result of the defendant's alleged misconduct. The suit challenged the defendant's purported mislabeling of its products as "Made in the U.S.A." O'Brien v. Camisasca Automotive Manufacturing, Inc., 161 Cal.App.4th 388 (2008).
