Janik case uproar

Blawgosphere is in an uproar over the Janik v. Rudy, Exelrod & Zieff case, which apparently will require B&P 17200 counts in business litigation.

The Legal Reader has this pro-reform comment here, and the pro-17200 UCL Practicioner site has this comment.

One argument raised by Rudy, Exelrod was that before the Cortez decision, there was no authority to support a UCL claim for unpaid wages. Slip. Op. at 16-17.

Before we all get carried away, please understand the procedural posture of this case. This case reversed a demurrer on the grounds that there was in fact a duty owed to certain class members; it is not an imposition of a fine or a judgment.

So, stay tuned.
