Juarez v. Arcadia Fin., Ltd., D048640

In class action brought under the Unfair Competition Law alleging that defendant engaged in unlawful, unfair and fraudulent business practices by violating the requirements of the Rees-Levering Automobile Sales Finance Act, summary judgment for defendant on the class claims and the denial of plaintiffs' motion to compel discovery are reversed where: 1) defendant's notices of intention to dispose of repossessed vehicles are insufficient under Rees-Levering; and 2) the information sought by plaintiffs was reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.
