People v. Gomez (Cal. Supreme Ct. - April 10, 2008)

Here's a great opinion for those substantive criminal law buffs out there. Or, for that matter, anyone else who wants to know the precise difference between "larceny" and "robbery".

Here, it starts as larceny, but turns into robbery. I'll leave you to the opinion to ascertain precisely when (and how) that happens.
