In dismissing the lawsuit, the Court applied recently-enacted language from Proposition 64 which limits a person’s right to sue under California law to situations in which the plaintiff is able to demonstrate actual injury. The Court of Appeal subsequently affirmed the ruling on appeal.¬†JMBM Litigators Stanley Gibson and Matt Hinks represented Volkswagen.
