Because the Supreme Court is closed tomorrow, the court today announced a Monday morning opinion filing.  It will be in Presbyterian Camp and Conference Centers, Inc. v. Superior Court.  (Briefs here; oral argument video here.)

The issue is whether a corporation can be held liable under Health and Safety Code sections 13009 and 13009.1 for the costs of suppressing and investigating fires that its agents or employees negligently or illegally set, allowed to be set, or allowed to escape.  The court granted review in January 2020.  Horvitz & Levy filed the petition for review and briefed and argued the case in the Supreme Court.

Third District Justice Louis Mauro is sitting as a pro tem in place of Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, who left the court a few weeks after the Presbyterian Camp argument in October.

There are two other undecided cases from the October calendar.  Opinions in those matters will likely be filed on either December 30 or January 3.

The opinion can be viewed Monday starting at 10:00 a.m.
