Steadman v. Osborne, No. E046603

In plaintiff's case against defendant claiming political abuse and misuse of campaign funds in connection with a measure, trial court's denial of defendant's motion to strike the ninth cause of action in plaintiff's complaint is reversed as plaintiff does not have the right to prosecute her ninth cause of action as a private attorney general under sections 89512.5, 89513, and 89514 of the Political Reform Act.
