A couple of weeks ago, the Supreme Court granted review in two cases concerning whether hospitals’ alleged failures to adequately disclose certain emergency room fees violated the state’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law.

They were both straight grants, but we said at the time that one might later become a grant-and-hold for the other. That happened on Monday, when the court ordered action deferred in Naranjo v. Doctors Medical Center of Modesto “pending consideration and disposition of a related issue in Capito v. San Jose Healthcare System.” (Link added.)

The court had actually straight granted two separate petitions for review in Capito and the court on Monday also made one Capito matter a grant-and-hold for the other.
