California Supreme Court Extends Time to Rule on Petition for Review in Buell-Wilson

The California Supreme Court issued an order today granting itself an extension of time to rule on the petition for review in Buell-Wilson v. Ford Motor Co. (See the court's online docket.) The new deadline for a ruling is July 25, but the court is likely to rule well before the 25th. As readers of this blog will recall, the court did the same thing last week in another punitive damages case, Holdgrafer v. Unocal, and then the court ruled on the petition this week.
