The Court has recently granted review in two civil cases:
Ralphs Grocery v. United Food & Commercial Workers Union, S185544, in which the Court of Appeal, formerly 186 Cal.App.4th 1078, held that the state cannot force the owner or possessor of real property that is not a public forum to give an uninvited group (in this case, a union) access to private property to engage in speech based on the content of the speech, in light of the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U. S. Constitution. The Supreme Court will also address whether the parking area and walkway in front of the entrance to plaintiff’s retail store, which is part of a larger shopping center, constitute a public forum under Robins v. Pruneyard Shopping Center and its progeny. For more details, see the Civil Rights update page.
