Blue Cross of Ca., Inc. v. Sup. Ct., No. B215035
In an action arising out of a lawsuit filed by a city attorney against a health insurer and others concerning coverage rescission practices, defendants' petition for a writ of mandate to reverse trial court's ruling denying their demurrer to the complaint is denied as the California Department of Managed Health Care's regulatory and enforcement authority does not preclude the city attorney form pursuing the unfair competition and false advertising claims.
