JINSONG SHI VS ALG LAWYERS INC., ET AL.

Second Cause of Action for Violation of the Unfair Competition Law Defendant contends that because “Plaintiff has failed to allege a predicate tort—namely, fraud—his cause of action under Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 also fails.” (Demurrer 12:25-26.) As the fraud claim and theory of civil conspiracy survive, so does this claim. Defendant submits no argument other than the second cause of action should fail as derivative of the first. Defendant’s demurrer to the second cause of action is overruled.

NEFERTARI VS GRUPE MANAGEMENT

The one exception is plaintiff’s 11th cause of action, for violation of the UCL (Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 17200 et seq.). It is by no means obvious that there remains a viable UCL claim against Bigelow.

And Bigelow makes no effort at all to address any deficiencies or defenses it would have against the UCL claim.
