In Fuller v. First Franklin Financial Corp., ___ Cal.App.4th ___ (May 1, 2013; pub. ord. May 29, 2013), the Court of Appeal (Third Appellate District) reinstated the plaintiffs' UCL and other claims, all of which the trial court had dismissed on the pleadings as barred by the statute of limitations. The Court held that the complaint adequately alleged facts sufficient to bring the case within the doctrine of fraudulent concealment, as construed in Aryeh v. Canon Business Solutions, Inc., 55 Cal.4th 1185 (2013) (discussed in this blog post).
The case is not a class action. It involves alleged misrepresentations by a lender and broker in connection with a home purchase.
