The state Court of Appeal denied Sept 9th a request by SF Weekly and its chain parent for a rehearing in the Bay Guardian's lawsuit. That allows the appelate decision affirming the Guardian's trial court victory to stand.
The court issued a few minor amendment to footnotes in the case, but denied the Weekly's request that the evidence be reconsidered. That means the decision remains as precedent-setting case law in California.
The court decision was a major victory not just for the Bay Guardian but for small businesses across the state who are facing predatory chains that sell below cost with the goal of harming competition.
