« Supreme Court decides pre-certification communication case: Pioneer Electronics (USA), Inc. v. Superior Court | Main | Media coverage of Pioneer Electronics »

Thursday, January 25, 2007



Do you think the holding is limited to cases involving precertification and/or class action cases? It appears that the Court wanted to limit the holding to class action cases from the way it framed the issues:

“[w]e consider here the extent to which California’s right to privacy provision (Cal. Const., art. I, § 1) protects these purchasers from having their identifying information disclosed to the plaintiff during civil discovery proceedings in a consumers’ rights class action against the seller”; and also the language in the discusion section: “[d]oes a complaining purchaser possess a right to privacy protecting him or her from unsolicited contact by a class action plaintiff seeking relief from the vendor to whom the purchaser’s complaint was sent?”

I would be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this.
