New blog page: Pending Supreme Court appeals involving the UCL
Over the weekend, I created a new page for the blog that lists all of the pending Supreme Court cases that I'm aware of in which review has been granted and in which one or more UCL issues are to be decided. (The new list does not include cases involving the Prop. 64 retroactivity issue, which are catalogued separately here.) One of the cases, Snowney v. Harrah's Entertainment, has been scheduled for oral argument on May 3, 2005 at 9:00 a.m. In that case, the Supreme Court will decide the following issue:
In an action alleging false advertising and unfair business practices, are Nevada hotels subject to personal jurisdiction in California based on advertising in the state, maintaining a toll-free telephone number for accepting reservations from within the state, and maintaining an internet website capable of processing online reservations of California residents?
If you know of any other pending Supreme Court cases involving the UCL in which review has been granted, please drop me a line. Also, if you have copies of any of the briefs in these cases, I'd very much like to see them.
