From the article...

"On January 29, 2009, the California Supreme Court issued its decision in Meyer v. Sprint Spectrum L.P., (1) holding that the mere exposure to an unlawful practice is insufficient to confer standing under the Consumers Legal Remedies Act ("CLRA"), California Civil Code Section 1750 et seq., and (2) affirming the denial of declaratory relief where the plaintiff had not shown that resolution of the dispute would result in any practical consequence.
