People v. Vasquez (Cal. Ct. App. - Aug. 31, 2015)

Who needs me when you have Justice Gilbert, who write the following as the first two sentences of this opinion:

"The new owner of a house prepares to move in. She transfers utilities to her name, installs locks, leaves personal items in the house, paints an interior wall of the garage, and comes and goes during daytime hours narrowly missing defendant's two intrusions. Here we hold these facts are sufficient to establish her house is an inhabited dwelling for purposes of first degree burglary."

Pretty darn informative, eh?  Concise, too.
