California Supreme Court Accepts Case On Public Use of Private Lawyers

The California Supreme Court has accepted review in County of Santa Clara v. Superior Court (S163681).  The question presented is whether a public entity may retain private counsel to prosecute a public nuisance abatement action under a contingency fee agreement.    In the lower court's decision, the California Court of Appeal approved the practice. 

UCL Practitioner and Point of Law both have analysis of the appellate court's decision.
