As I reported last week, the Supreme Court granted review in Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1756, AFL-CIO v. Superior Court, no. S151615. The Court's statement of issues on review is now available online:
This case presents the following issues: (1) Does a worker’s assignment to the worker’s union of a cause of action for meal and rest period violations carry with it the worker’s right to sue in a representative capacity under the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (Lab. Code, § 2698 et seq.) or the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, § 17200 et seq.)? (2) Does Business and Professions Code section 17203, as amended by Proposition 64, which provides that representative claims may be brought only if the injured claimant “complies with Section 382 of the Code of Civil Procedure,” require that private representative claims meet the procedural requirements applicable to class action lawsuits?
If anyone has a copy of the petition for review, please send it along by email (email@example.com).
