Anchor Pacifica Mgm't Co. v. Green (Cal. Ct. App. - April 23, 2012)

The next time that someone tells you that appellate jurisprudence has changed a lot during the past half-century, here's Exhibit A of your rebuttal.

Due process and state action requirements have changed a ton since the Warren Court.  But this same opinion could easily have been written back then.  Something I can almost never say when I read opinions from the California Court of Appeal.

That's either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your view.  But it's definitely true.

The times they aren't (always) a-changin'.
