Supreme Court denies Krumme petition for review
Today, the Supreme Court denied the petition for review and depublication request in Krumme v. Mercury Insurance Co., 123 Cal.App.4th 924 (2004). The docket is accessible here. As you probably know, Krumme is one of the first pending appeals in which the Proposition 64 retroactivity issue was raised. The original opinion was issued on October 29, 2004, the Friday before the election. The Court of Appeal affirmed a UCL judgment in the plaintiff's favor, even though the plaintiff was not one of the defendant's policyholders and was "utterly 'disinterested' in the controversy he began." Under the law in effect at that time, the plaintiff's "disinterestedness" was no impediment to his suit. After Proposition 64 passed, the defendant sought rehearing, which the Court of Appeal denied. A petition for review followed, along with a depublication request, both of which were denied today.
