On Tuesday, December 29, 2009, the Daily Journal had a perspective article called "Class Arbitration After Gentry" (subscription). The article, by Richard L. Kellner and Karen Liao of Kabateck Brown Kellner in Los Angeles, begins:
More than two years have passed since the California Supreme Court decided Gentry v. Superior Court, 42 Cal.4th 443 (2007), which ostensibly opened the door to arbitrations in employment class action[s]. While proponents of class action arbitration rejoiced when the Gentry opinion was issued, the floodgates of class action arbitrations never opened. In all likelihood, that is because questions remain regarding the procedures, scope and implications of class action arbitrations.
