Although not strictly related to the UCL or class action practice, the Supreme Court's grant of review yesterday in Coito v. Superior Court (State of California), no. 181712, is of interest. The case will address the extent to which the attorney work product doctrine protects witness statements gathered in investigating a case.
On a 2-1 vote, the Court of Appeal (Fifth Appellate District) held that the witness statements in question were not protected. Coito v. Superior Court (State of California), 182 Cal. App. 4th 758 (2010). More on that opinion can be found at Professor Martin's blog, California Appellate Report, and in these two posts at The Complex Litigator.
