Morning news roundup
The Daily Journal reported yesterday (while its website was down) on Baxter v. Salutary Sportsclub: "Fees Nixed in Consumer Protection Case." The article provides some interesting backstory. Apparently, the plaintiff's attorney has "made a practice of suing Northern California clubs for failing to precisely comply with state requirements for health studio contracts." Proposition 64 supporters believe his conduct exemplifies the problems with the UCL. On the other hand, Proposition 64 opponents "insisted that the case proves the system is working as it should. The courts, they said, recognized [the attorney's] efforts as next-to-worthless and rewarded him accordingly."

This morning, there's an article on the front page of the Daily Journal that's not on its website: "Lockyer Says Proposition 64 Would Hurt Californians." The article begins, "Attorney General Bill Lockyer and environmental groups Thursday launched a spirited defense of the state's Unfair Competition Law, saying a measure on the November ballot would cripple environmental and privacy standards."
