« Materials from yesterday's seminar | Main | Recent UCL "unfair" prong decision: RLH Industries v. SBC Communications »

Monday, December 05, 2005


John Hurley

Eddins v. Sumner Redstone actually seems to be a pretty vanilla "unlawful" case with respect to the UCL. The Court of Appeal decided that because there was a triable issue of material fact on a claim under the Unfair Practices Act, it was also error to grant summarry adjudication on a UCL claim:

"[S]ince the defendants’ conduct may be unlawful under the Unfair Practices Act, it necessarily follows that summary judgment on the UCL claim was also erroneous."


Looking at the case again, I think John's right.
