California Supreme Court declines review in Cohen v. DIRECTV, Inc. (October 28, 2009); lets lower courts sort it out for now

Today, the California Supreme Court denied a Petition for Review and Depublication in Cohen v. DIRECTV, Inc. (October 28, 2009).  The Court may very well have viewed the issues as premature, given that Cohen has been heavily criticized by other decisions and may become marginalized to the point of extinction.  Most recently, the modified opinion in Steroid Hormone Product Cases all but called Cohen flat out wrong in its analysis of Tobacco II.  The fun never stops.
