Later this morning the California Supreme Court will post opinions in Bruns (Dana) v. E-Commerce Exchange, Inc., et al. and In re Baycol Cases I and II.

Baycol raises the following issue: Did the “death knell doctrine” require plaintiff to immediately appeal the sustaining of a demurer as to class claims when the ruling resolved both individual and class claims, or did the one final judgment rule apply and require a single appeal from the subsequent entry of final judgment on all claims?
