HEALTH NET OF CA, INC. v. DEP'T OF HEALTH SERV., C041197

Summary judgment to defendant is reversed where defendant's exculpatory clause is invalid under section 1668 insofar as it exculpates defendant from liability for any money damages for statutory and regulatory violations, and alternatively, it violates section 1668 because it affects the public interest.
