“Telinar” next Tuesday on Cal Supreme Court’s Kwikset decision

This topic is not strictly in line with our usual coverage of the Supreme Court, but I’m taking the liberty of using our blog to get the word out on an upcoming ABA telephone seminar titled “California’s Kwikset Decision and Its Effect on Standing and Monetary Recovery under California Unfair Competition Laws.” This will be Tuesday, February 15, at noon Pacific Time. Best part? It’s free, even for non-ABA members.

Here’s the program description: In a state known for its consumer fraud class action cases, all of those who do business or litigate in California have been waiting for the state Supreme Court’s decision. The opinion decided an important question of standing in unfair competition cases. This timely panel will explore the consequences of the decision in terms of case strategies for plaintiffs and defendants, and will also debate the implications of the decision’s discussion of the monetary relief available under the unfair competition laws.

Moderator: Dale Giali, Howrey LLP
Panelists: Jeff LeVee, Jones Day; Lisa Perrochet, Horvitz & Levy; Jamie Speyer, Arnold & Porter LLP

To register (which is how you get the call-in information), go to the ABA’s site.

  1. Thanks for taking the liberty to write this topic. What a great heads-up. Is there a recording for lawyers who can’t listen in at that time?

  2. Kwikset was published on January 27, 2011. I didn’t see that there was a blog posting announcing the decision. Why not?

  3. At the lectern is currently my favorite blog. I try to follow it everyday on Twitter since I discovered it a few weeks ago. It would be nice to know the same day a decision comes out. And it would be nice to get a link to the slip opinion and a link to the case on Google Scholar.

  4. Thanks for the comments, Damian. Our goal with this blog is to provide news and discussion relating to the practice of law before the Supreme Court of California. We’re not attempting to provide substantive coverage of every decision issued by the court. Not yet, anyway. If you’re looking for a site that provides links to and summaries of the court’s opinions, try http://scocal.stanford.edu/.

  5. Damian – sorry for the belated reply to your inquiry about listening to a recording of our Kwikset telinar. I’ve been trying to track down a link, but the folks familiar with the process say ABA is in the middle of revamping the website, so it’s not available yet. I’m told there’s supposed to be a link that ABA members (or maybe just the antitrust section members) can listen to for free, but it’s not up yet. Thanks for the inquiry! – LP
