WCC Citation: WCC 35972010 CA

Case Name: People v. Blick 07/24/2007
Note: In order to violate subsection (b)(3) of Insurance Code section 550, a person, in addition to concealing or knowingly failing to disclose, must intend to obtain benefits to which they would not be entitled if they had made the disclosure. In short, the person must intend to commit a fraud.

Case Name: People v. Boulware 04/10/2008
Note: [Unpublished] After the appellant has obtained an order for a new trial, a trial court is limited to imposing a sentence no greater than that originally imposed.

Case Name: People v. Chavez 04/02/2008

There is no triable issue on appeal.

Case Name: People v. Grigsby 02/27/2008

WCC Citation: WCC 33232008 CA
Case Name: People v. Groce 08/31/2010

Citation: D055456
WCC Citation: WCC 36622010 CA
Case Name: People v. Hammond 10/11/2012
