The Supreme Court's notice of forthcoming filings indicates that it will be handing down its opinion tomorrow morning in Reed v. Google, Inc., no. S158965. This case was argued on May 26, 2010 and will address summary judgment motion standards.
This is the Court's statement of issues on review:
(1) Should California law recognize the “stray remarks” doctrine, which permits the trial court in ruling on a motion for summary judgment to disregard isolated discriminatory remarks or comments unrelated to the decision-making process as insufficient to establish discrimination? (2) Are evidentiary objections not expressly ruled on at the time of decision on a summary judgment motion preserved for appeal?
When the opinion is posted online tomorrow, it should be available at this link:
