Speaking from my personal experience with the lemon law repurchase of my ex-E93, the CA lemon law has a presumption of 'lemon-ness' if the defect (and yes, a leak is a defect) can't be repaired after...

Magic 8-Ball says OP has an A/C repair in the near future. Best case, the front radiator (condenser) has a leak. Worst case, the in-car radiator (evaporator) has a leak.
