Court of Appeal Denies Petition for Rehearing in Buell-Wilson v. Ford

The Court of Appeal in the Buell-Wilson case (see prior discussion here) denied Ford's petition for rehearing today. The order not only denies the rehearing petition but goes further and modifies the published opinion to express the court's disagreement with one of Ford's rehearing arguments. That seems unusually harsh, consistent with the tone of the rest of the opinion.

UPDATE: Professor Martin at California Appellate Report blogs about the modification of the opinion.
