California is a "stand your ground" state in regards to self-defense statute.

Not only does the law not dictate a duty to retreat, but in California, you can legally pursue and kill your attacker *after* he flees.

The opposite of what I expected to read.

There is no law protecting it per se but the jury instructions for self defense cases do indicate that there is no duty to retreat in the face of danger.
