Levy v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., G035677

Orders sustaining demurrer to complaint and granting defendant's motions to strike class action and to dismiss one plaintiff on the grounds of forum non conveniens are affirmed over plaintiffs' claims that they had properly alleged both individual and class claims arising from defendant's practice of omitting certain labor and material costs from its repair estimates, and using its own contracted repair shops in its survey to determine the prevailing competitive repair labor rates included in its estimates.
