California Antitrust & Unfair Competition Law - 5th Ed.

May 2007

Since the fourth edition of this book was published two years ago, there have been several significant court decisions concerning the scope and nature of California’s antitrust and unfair competition laws. Many of these decisions deal with the implementation of Proposition 64, the amendment to the Unfair Competition Law (“UCL”) which imposed new standing and class action requirements for private litigants under that statute. The California Supreme Court held these new standing and class action requirements applied to actions pending at the time the voters passed Proposition 64, as well as to actions filed thereafter. One California Court of Appeal also rendered a decision under the secret discount/rebate statute in the Unfair Practices Act (“UPA”) which expands the scope of that law.

These decisions, as well as other developments through the end of 2006, will be discussed in this Fifth Edition of California Antitrust & Unfair Competition Law.
