This case presents the following issue:  May a felony conviction for the unauthorized use of personal identifying information of another (Pen. Code, § 530.5, subd.

(2)  People v. Perez (Jose Luis) et al., S248730
The court limited review to the following issue:  Did defendant’s failure to object at trial, before People v. Sanchez (2016) 63 Cal.4th 665 was decided, forfeit his claim that a gang expert’s testimony related case-specific hearsay in violation of his Sixth Amendment right of confrontation? 

(3)  People v. Veamatahau (Joseph), S249872
The court limited review to the following issues:  (1) Did the prosecution’s expert witness relate inadmissible case-specific hearsay to the jury by using a drug database to identify the chemical composition of the drug defendant possessed?  (2) Did substantial evidence support defendant’s conviction for possession of a controlled substance (Health & Saf. Code, § 11375, subd. (b)(2))?
