Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff-Association of California Insurance Companies' lawsuit disputing the validity of the 2006 amendments to regulations permitting consumer interest interveners to obtain compensation for participation in the administrative rate-setting process where an order or decision is issued by the Commissioner on an insurer's rate-setting application without a formal rate hearing is affirmed where: 1) plaintiffs have failed to establish that the amended regulations are inconsistent with the governing statutes, and the trial court properly rendered a judgment denying their petition for a peremptory writ of mandate; and 2) plaintiffs fail to show that the trial court erred in awarding Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights compensation payable by them.
