Yesterday, the Court of Appeal published its opinion in Pfizer v. Superior Court (Galfano), ___ Cal.App.4th ___ (Feb. 25, 2010; pub. ord. Mar. 2, 2010), which originally was handed down as an unpublished opinion last week. The opinion grants a writ of mandate reversing the trial court's order certifying a class, notwithstanding Tobacco II.
The docket does not list any letters requesting publication. It appears the panel simply reconsidered whether the opinion met the standards for publication and decided it did.
