#21-87 Brennon B. v. Superior Court, S266254.

#21-87 Brennon B. v. Superior Court, S266254. (A157026; 57 Cal.App.5th 367; Contra Costa County Superior Court; MSC1601005.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal denied a petition for peremptory writ of mandate. This case presents the following issues: (1) Is a public school district a “business establishment” within the meaning of the Unruh Civil Rights Act (Civ. Code, § 51)? (2) Even if a public school district is not a “business establishment” under that Act, can it nevertheless be sued under the Act when the alleged discriminatory conduct is actionable under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq.)?

Review granted: 2/24/2021
