Berman Tabacco


Kwikset Corp. v. Superior Court of Orange County; James Benson, Real Parties in Interest, No. S171845 (Cal. Supreme Ct.).

Berman Tabacco represented three union clients as amicus curiae before the California Supreme Court in this consumer action alleging that Kwikset falsely labeled products as “Made in the USA.” The California Supreme Court’s ultimate opinion (Kwikset Corp. v. Superior Court, 51 Cal. 4th 310 (2011)), was highly favorable to consumers and became one of the leading opinions regarding standing under California’s Unfair Competition Law.
