California's Kwikset Decision and Its Effect on Standing and Monetary Recovery under California Unfair Competition Laws
In a state known for its consumer fraud class action cases, all of those who do business or litigate in California have been waiting for the state Supreme Court's Kwikset decision. The opinion decided an important question of standing in unfair competition cases. This timely panel will explore the consequences of the decision in terms of case strategies for plaintiffs and defendants, and will also debate the implications of the decision's discussion of the monetary relief available under the unfair competition laws.
Despite the lack of any plaintiff-side panelists, I am assured that the presentation is intended to be balanced.
