Aryeh v. Canon Business Solutions Opinion Forthcoming

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 yesterday announced that it will issue its decision on Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 10 a.m. Stayed tuned for further information, including information on the State Bar of California's Watch List Webinar on the decision.
