Supreme Court acts in two Proposition 64 cases
Yesterday, the Supreme Court took action in two pending cases in which the Prop. 64 retroactivity issue has been raised.

First, the Court denied the petition for review in Poirer v. State Farm Mut. Auto Ins. Co. In that case, the Prop. 64 issue was raised in a short, final section of a brief mostly focused on other substantive topics. (I know this because I went to the Supreme Court clerk's office last month and read the brief.)

Second, the Court asked for additional briefing in Virtual Media Group v. Superior Court. Prop. 64 retroactivity is the only issue raised in the review petition in that case. The petition was filed on December 8, and no response had been submitted yet (a common strategy in Supreme Court practice). Now, however, an informal response and a reply will be due on January 24 and 28, respectively.

At least two other cases filed in the Supreme Court, listed here, raise the Prop. 64 issue.
