Environmental Planning and Information Council v. Superior Court

(1985) 36 Cal.3d 188

The California Supreme Court held that an environmental organization can constitutionally proceed with a secondary boycott against advertisers of a newspaper in order to influence editorial policy. Because of the infringement on petitioner’s constitutional rights of free speech, the Supreme Court, upon application by petitioners for a writ of mandate, determined that there were no triable issues of fact and determined that petitioners were entitled to summary judgment. I was lead counsel for this matter.
