California Court of Appeal
Van Zant v. Apple, Inc., H039354
In this class action lawsuit brought against defendant Apple Inc., alleging false advertising, breach of warranty, and other claims related to Apple's marketing and sales of a smartphone, the trial court sustained Apple's demurrer and granted motion to dismiss on grounds that plaintiffs failed to join the network carrier as a necessary party. Judgment is reversed, where under Code of Civil Procedure section 389(a), the network carrier is not a necessary party.
