Holcomb v. Wells Fargo Bank (Cal. Ct. App. - Sept. 20, 2007)

The overwhelming majority of pro se civil litigants lose in the trial court. And it is my strong, strong sense that a similarly high percentage of pro se litigants lose when they attempt to file an appeal.

But there's an exception that proves every rule. And this is one of them. Scott Holcomb wins his appeal of the demurrer granted to Wells Fargo Bank. In a decision that gives hope -- albeit, in truth, merely the smallest of glimmers of hope -- to pro se litigants everywhere.
