BASURO v. 21ST CENTURY INS. CO., B156776

Denial of a class certification motion brought by homeowners allegedly denied insurance benefits in the aftermath of an earthquake is affirmed, as common questions of law and fact did not predominate over individual issues, and a class action would not be superior to individual lawsuits.
