According to Friday's notice of forthcoming filings, two opinions of interest will be handed down this morning at 10:00 a.m.:
- Clark v. Superior Court (Nat'l Western Life Ins.), ___ Cal.4th ___ (Aug. 10, 2010) (no. S174229)
- Lu v. Hawaiian Gardens Casino, Inc., ___ Cal.4th ___ (Aug. 10, 2010) (no. S171442)
Clark involves whether the enhanced remedies of Civil Code section 3345 (applicable in certain cases brought by senior citizens and disabled persons) are recoverable in a UCL "unlawful" prong case predicated on violation of that statute. Here's my original post on the case.
Lu involves whether Labor Code section 351 creates a private right of action. The case also included a UCL "unlawful" prong cause of action, my original discussion of which is here.
