Littlejohn v. Costco Wholesale Corp., 144440

Affirmed a finding of no liability, where a consumer sued Costco, the California Board of Equalization, and others on a claim for the refund of sales taxes on Ensure nutritional drinks, arguing that no sales tax was actually due on these purchases because Ensure is categorized as a food product. In affirming the lower court's ruling sustaining a demurrer, the appellate court held that the case did not fall within the scope of Javor v. State Board of Equalization, 12 Cal. 3d 790 (1974).
