The California Supreme Court held its (usually) weekly conference on December 1, 2010. Notable results include:
- On a Petition for Review, review was denied in Fisher v. DCH Temecula Imports (August 13, 201), mentioned briefly on this blog here. [Class action ban in arbitration provision unconscionable.] Interestingly, the California Supreme Court recently denied review in Walnut Producers v.

- On a Petition for Review, review was denied in Fireside Bank Cases (pub. August 25, 2010). [Res judicata issues in UCL action regarding alleged Rees-Levering violations.]
