Richardson-Tunnell v. School Insurance Program (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 10, 2007)

You can be secretly videotaped at your wedding and wedding reception by a crasher who pretends to be invited. At least if you're alleged to be faking your disability claim. Or at least if the person who's doing it is entitled to governmental immunity.

So holds Justice Coffee. In an opinion that, to me, seems right.

P.S. - I wasn't involved in this case, which is out of San Luis Obispo, but I was involved in a different case -- on a different subject matter -- that was (1) also in San Luis Obispo, (2) before the same judge in this case (Martin Tangeman), (3) in which the attorney for the plaintiff here (Daniel O'Neill) was also counsel for the plaintiff there, and (4) in which the attorney for the defendant here (David Cumberland) was also counsel for one of the main defendants there. Small world. (Or at least small San Luis Obispo!)
