Ehrlich Law Firm obtains depublication of flawed appellate opinion on “duty”

California Supreme Court SealOn February 22, 2012, the California Supreme Court denied review in Gonzales v. Southern California Gas Co., but it also ordered that the decision not be published in the Official Appellate Reports of the state.  Hence, the decision in Gonzales will not be citeable as authority in California courts.  The appellate opinion in Gonzales held that the property owners were categorically exempt from liability for the placement of fixed objects on their property, even if the object was a natural-gas distribution facility that would cause a conflagration if struck by a car.

Jeffrey I. Ehrlich filed a letter requesting depublication of the Gonzales decision on behalf of the Consumer Attorneys of California.  It was the only depublication letter filed.
