California Residents: Sue The Rental Comapanies!

Dear Californians: imagine being stuck at the Avis counter in a city you hate during the holidays. Say like, oh, we don't know...Birmingham, Alabama. So say you're stuck at the Avis counter in the 'Ham, and the car you reserved is nowhere in sight. No recourse, right? Go somewhere else, waste time, rent a more expensive car, etc. Well, a new law allows California residents to sue rental companies for lost time and money from the comfort of their own jurisdictions. We're not sure if you can sue for the pain and suffering of being stuck in Alabama, though. After all, it's your own fault you went in the first place.
