Legislative activity on SB 185
SB 185 has been officially revised and is now a bill to amend the UCL. It would add a new provision, Bus. & Prof. Code section 17203.7, which "would require a private person bringing an unfair competition action on behalf of the interests of the general public to submit a copy of the complaint to the Attorney General." Not a very dramatic amendment.

On Monday, the San Francisco Chronicle had this article on a proposed legislative compromise on the UCL (thanks to California Labor & Employment Law). Based on that article and the Recorder's article last Friday, I certainly expected something more than this very minor amendment to SB 185. Bus. & Prof. Code section 17209 already requires all appellate briefs in UCL cases to be served on the AG's office; this new proposal doesn't add much.
