Schweitzer v. Westminster Investments (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 13, 2007)

Guess who represented the appellant in this case, in which Justice McDonald reverses the judgment below and holds that the bond provisions of the Home Equity Sales Contracts Act (Cal. Civ. Code, § 1695 et seq.) are void for vagueness and hence unconstitutional under the Due Process Clause?

None other than Mark Maasch, a double U. Wisconsin graduate (BS '78, JD '81) who left the cold environs of Madison to practice down here in San Diego. Oh, yeah. And this guy.

Congratulations, Mark. It's always fun to brief and argue a constitutional law issue on appeal. Great job.
