Proposition 64 Held Retroactive

Proposition 64, passed by votes in 2004, was held by the California Supreme Court to be retroactive to cases that were pending when the legislation was passed. Proposition 64 severely limited California’s unfair competition law, requiring that only individuals who had actually suffered a loss from an unfair act and that anyone filing on behalf of a group must satisfy class action certification requirements. Proposition 64 was designed to severely curtail frivolous unfair competition claims. It was considered to be a huge win for employers.
