Yesterday the California Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal in Harrold v. Levi Strauss & Co., a case that clarified the scope of California’s Song-Beverly Credit Card Act, Civil Code section 1747.08, in the context of retailers’ requests for personal identification information from credit card customers standing at the point of sale in a store.  The Court also refused a request for the opinion to be depublished.  Therefore, the opinion from the Court of Appeal stands, establishing binding precedent for lower courts in the state.

For a detailed discussion of Harrold and its impact on retailers, see our previous post.
