HARRIS v. WESTLY, B160741

The notice provisions of the Unclaimed Property Law do not require the California Controller to provide notice to apparent owners of the escheated stock before the Controller sells the stock. Sale of escheated stock without notice to the owners does not violate the due process provisions of the federal or state constitutions.
