2012 Appeal to Cal. Supreme Court - People (City of Beverly Hills) v. Borzakian

In Feb. 2012 the Court of Appeal ordered its decision in Borzakian to be published;  however, in Mar. 2012 the Court of Appeal filed a conflicting decision, in the Goldsmith case, so both cases went to the California Supreme Court.
