Local focus for State Supreme Court
The California Supreme Court’s 2006-07 term generated a surprising number of cases dealing with essentially local issues. There were no grand decisions involving broad constitutional or social issues, no major political cases and very little to generate big headlines. Instead, the cases were about what happens in cities and neighborhoods, what happens on premises and what happens at parks and pools. In other words, the cases were about the lives of ordinary people doing ordinary things.
