California Supreme Court activity for the week of March 12, 2012

The California Supreme Court held its (usually) weekly conference on March 14, 2012.  Notable results include:

  • Review was granted in Rose v. Bank of America.  The Court of Appeal held that a UCL "unlawful" prong claim could not be based upon alleged violations of the federal Truth in Savings Act, 12 U.S.C. § 4301 et seq.
  • Review was granted, and the matter held, in Aleman v. Airtouch Cellular (December 21, 2011).  The "lead" case for which Aleman was held is  Kirby v. Immoos Fire Protection, Inc.  The issue for review in Aleman is likely the portion of Aleman concerning one-way or two-way fee recoveries.
