Verdugo v. Target (9th Cir. - Dec. 11, 2012)

I agree with the Ninth Circuit that certifying this question to the California Supreme Court is a decent idea.  No reason not to get a decision on this question straight from the horse's mouth.

But if I had to guess, I don't think that tribunal is going to agree with Judge Pregerson.  My prediction of state law would be that there's no common law duty for a business owner to have an AED (Automatic External Defibrilator) on the premises.
