California Supreme Court to Issue Opinion in Kwikset Corp. et al. v. Superior Court:

The California Supreme Court has issued a Notice that it will be issuing its opinion in Kwikset Corp. et al. v. Superior Court tomorrow. The issue in Kwikset is as follows:
Does a plaintiff’s allegation that he purchased a product in reliance on the product label’s misrepresentation about a characteristic of the product satisfy the requirement for standing under the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, § 17200 et seq.) that the plaintiff allege a loss of money or property, or is such a plaintiff unable to allege the required loss of money or property because he obtained the benefit of his bargain by receiving the product in exchange for the payment?
