California Supreme Court Grants Review to Consider Class Action "Death Knell" Doctrine

On February 18, 2010, the Cal. Supreme Court granted review in Baycol Cases I and II to consider the following issue:
Did the "death knell doctrine" require plaintiff to immediately appeal the sustaining of a demurer as to class claims when the ruling resolved both individual and class claims, or did the one final judgment rule apply and require a single appeal from the subsequent entry of final judgment on all claims?
The Court's docket is available here. Anyone litigating class actions in California is going to want to follow this case. You can sign up for email notification of all developments on the Court's docket page.
