Last Thursday, November 19, 2009, was a busy day for our state appellate courts. Thirteen published opinions (and one modification of a published opinion) were issued on that date. I've been following the opinions for a long time, and that's a huge number for a single day. It probably had something to do with the fact that the preceding day (Wednesday, Nov. 18) was a court closure day. I have a feeling that a lot of our appellate justices and research attorneys (not to mention our trial court judges) aren't exactly taking those days off.
Three of the Nov. 19th opinions, listed below, involve interesting UCL or class action issues. I will have more on these cases after the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!
