Public entities not bound by UCL
In Wells v. One2One Learning Foundation, 116 Cal.App.4th 515 (Mar. 3, 2004), the Court of Appeal held that a governmental entity (specifically, a public school) is not a "person" within the meaning of Business & Professions Code sections 17203 and 17208: "The UCL is designed to preserve fair competition among business competitors and protect the public from nefarious and unscrupulous business practices. The government is not in business. Thus, logically, it is not a person for purposes of the UCL."
