California Wage Law has an interesting post about Prop. 64 this week. It says that the amendments to the UCL have not stopped so-called "shakedown" suits. Coincidentally, a reader emailed me a copy of the complaint in the new 17200 case that is mentioned in that post. I'll see if I can put it up over the weekend. UPDATE: The pdf file includes the complaint itself but also some handwritten notes, which I can't really post online. In any event, the complaint is well-described in the Wage Law post. I express no view on whether it's a "shakedown" suit or not, but I do agree that Prop. 64 was far broader than necessary to remedy the problems it was meant to fix. A simple amendment requiring court approval of all settlements in UCL cases would have done the trick.
