Updates to Prop. 64 orders and appeals lists
I'm informed that on January 24, Judge Beauchesne issued a statement of decision in Paz v. Sanders, Stanislaus County Superior Court case no. 311470, in which he held that Prop. 64 does NOT apply to pending cases. In an order issued November 23, Judge Beauchesne had asked the parties to brief the issue.

I'm further informed that the tentative ruling issued by Judge Prager in In re Tobacco Cases II, JCCP no. 4042, San Diego County Superior Court, was NOT adopted. Instead, on January 21, Judge Prager took the matter under submission. The tentative decision was subsequently removed from the court's website. UPDATE: I just learned that the tentative is still up on the court's website at this link. Thank you to the reader who wrote in with the correction.

Finally, I've received word of another pending appellate case in which the Prop. 64 retroactivity issue has been raised: Branick v. Downey Sav. & Loan Assn., Second Appellate District, Division Five, case no. B172981. That appeal was argued and submitted on February 1.

This information has been added to my Prop. 64 orders list and my Prop. 64 appeals list.
