Hercules and the Not Very Hard Case

DKN Holdings v. Faerber, No. S218597 (Cal. Jul 13, 2015)

In a unanimous opinion written by Justice Corrigan, the California Supreme Court unanimously reverse the court of appeal’s strange ruling on res judicata on more or less exactly the same grounds as I pointed out in a post last year. (That post is one of my best-read ever.) So maybe Justice Corrigan is amongst those who read this blog and take note of the science dropped herein. Or maybe the court of appeal shouldn’t have rested its rationale on the grounds that an earlier Supreme Court decision, clearly on point, was “wrong.” We can only imagine.


Reversed.
