Petitions for review have been filed with the California Supreme Court in two cases involving class arbitration and Concepcion:
- Iskanian v. CLS Transportation, No. S204032 (petition for review filed 07/16/12)
- Hoover v. American Income Life Ins., No. S204218 (petition for review filed 07/23/12)
Several depublication requests have been filed in Hoover by defense-side interests. Both of the cases involve wage and hour claims brought by a putative class of workers.
Under Rule of Court 8.512(b)(1), the Supreme Court must grant or deny review within 60 days of the filing of a petition for review. (The Rule also allows the Court to grant itself an extension of time.) Accordingly, we may not see action in these cases for another month or so.
