HOLDINGS: [1]-Luman did not require court to revisit its finding that three plaintiffs had sufficiently alleged facts to show standing to seek injunctive relief; [2]-Plaintiffs had not alleged facts about defendant’s advertising campaign to show that in terms of breadth, content, and pervasiveness it would be appropriate to apply Tobacco II; [3]-Two plaintiffs based their Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) claim, in part, on purchases of plush whales. They did not state a claim since they did not allege any misrepresentations that related to uses, benefits, nature, or qualities of the whales; [4]-Allegations were sufficient to allege that defendant represented that its entertainment services had characteristics it did not have; [5]-Because no plaintiff had asserted a request for restitution under CLRA, the court denied, without prejudice, the motion to dismiss a CLRA claim on this basis. Parties’ litigation attorneys San Diego appeal.

Outcome

The court granted, in part, and denied, in part, defendant’s motion to dismiss.

Outcome

Motion for reconsideration was denied.
