Plaintiff alleges that Defendants advertised four brands of pre-moistened wipes as "flushable" when in fact the wipes are not suitable for disposal by flushing down a toilet, because they have a propensity to clog toilets and damage sewer systems. On behalf of a class of California consumers, Plaintiff alleges violations of California's Unfair Competition Law, False Advertising Law, Consumer Legal Remedies Act and for common law fraud. Briefly describe the result below and the main issues on appeal. Plaintiff contends that the District Court erred in requiring her to plead with specificity "how she came to learn" that the wipes were not flushable and to plead harm from product use even though the Court found that economic loss was adequately pled. It also erred in dismissing claims for injunctive relief and in denying leave to amend where its ruling was based on newly identified purported pleading deficiencies. Finally, Plaintiff takes issue with other applications oflegal principles that were inconsistent with controlling law and the Court's own earlier rulings. Describe any proceedings remaining below or any related proceedings in other tribunals.
