Camacho v. Automobile Club of S. Cal., B180134
Judgment on the pleadings in favor of defendants is affirmed as the complaint fails to allege facts that constitute an unfair practice under Business and Professions Code section 17200, that plaintiff actually and justifiably relied on alleged misrepresentations to his detriment, or that defendant collection agency engaged in the unauthorized practice of law. Denial of special motion to strike under SLAPP statute is affirmed as defendants failed to make a prima facie showing that Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16 applies.
