California Court of Appeal

Cent. Valley Gen. Hosp. v. Smith, F050590

A non-repudiating party does not need to sue for damages immediately upon learning of the events that constitute an anticipatory breach, and a claim for anticipatory breach is not precluded where executory covenants in the contract remain unperformed by the repudiating party. Further, California law authorizes the issuance of injunctive relief based on threatened misappropriation of trade secrets under Civil Code section 3426.2(a).
