Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court will file its opinions in Tansavatdi v. City of Rancho Palos Verdes and Davis v. Fresno Unified School District. (Briefs here; oral argument videos here and here.)

These will be the first opinions for any of the four cases argued in February. One of the other cases should be decided by May 8 and an opinion in the fourth — the death penalty appeal in People v. Wilson — isn’t due until June 15 because of post-argument supplemental briefing.

A week after granting review in Tansavatdi in April 2021, the court limited the issue to: “Can a public entity be held liable under Government Code section 830.8 for failure to warn of an allegedly dangerous design of public property that is subject to Government Code section 830.6 design immunity?”

In Davis, when the court granted review in March 2021, it limited the issue to:  “Is a lease-leaseback arrangement in which construction is financed through bond proceeds rather than by or through the builder a ‘contract’ within the meaning of Government Code section 53511?” The question is relevant to whether the plaintiff in the case can prosecute a taxpayer’s action seeking disgorgement.

The opinions can be viewed tomorrow starting at 10:00 a.m.
