California Supreme Court depublishes Liceaga v. Debt Recovery Solutions LLC, 169 Cal.App.4th 901 (December 29, 2008)

Greatsealcal100In Liceaga v. Debt Recovery Solutions LLC (December 29, 2008) the Court of Apppeal (First Appellate District, Division One) held that the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act completely preemted private rights of action under California's Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act.  Today, the Supreme Court directed The Reporter of Decisions not to publish the opinion in the official report.  This depublication is something of a boon consumers.  Until a Court in California holds otherwise, private actions under California’s Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act, Civil Code section 1785.1 et seq. (CCRAA), are not preempted by the corresponding federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.) (FCRA)).  For some reason, the Court's weekly conference summary isn't available online, but the docket confirms the depublication Order of April 29, 2009.  My original post on Liceaga is here.
