Aryeh v. Canon Business Solutions: Cal. Supreme Court Calendars Oral Argument

In Aryeh v. Canon Business Solutions (discussed here), the California Supreme Court will decide the following issues:  
  1. May the continuing violation doctrine, under which a defendant may be held liable for actions that take place outside the limitations period if those actions are sufficiently linked to unlawful conduct within the limitations period, be asserted in an action under the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code section 17200 et seq.)? 
  2. May the continuous accrual doctrine, under which each violation of a periodic obligation or duty is deemed to give rise to a separate cause of action that accrues at the time of the individual wrong, be asserted in such an action? 
  3. May the delayed discovery rule, under which a cause of action does not accrue until a reasonable person in the plaintiff's position has actual or constructive knowledge of facts giving rise to a claim, be asserted in such an action? 
The Supreme Court has scheduled oral argument for December 4, 2012, at 9:00 a.m.  Los Angeles oral arguments are at the Ronald Reagan State Office Building, 300 South Spring Street, 3rd Floor, Los Angeles.  In the afternoon session, the Court will hear argument on Harris v. City of Santa Monica (discussed hereanother of our Watch List cases.
