Golden State Water Co. v. Casitas Water Dist. (Cal. Ct. App. - May 13, 2015)

I mentioned when the original opinion came out last month that I thought that Justice Perren's opinion was particularly enthusiastic.  Comparing the appellant to, among other things, King George III.  In the opening paragraph, no less.

Today, Justice Perren tones it down a bit.  Amending the opinion to remove the references to King George III and monopolists.

It's still a strong opinion.  Don't get me wrong.

But the rhetoric is less over the top.
