ConAgra Grocery Products Company, 17 Cal. App. 5th 51. The petitions raise important issues of national significance regarding the decision, which imposed hundreds of millions of dollars in liability on the petitioners without affording them the most basic protections guaranteed by the Due Process and Free Speech Clauses of the U.S. Constitution.
