Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted review in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation, No. S204032.
In Iskanian, the Court of Appeal affirmed an order compelling arbitration of wage and hour claims, in heavy reliance on Concepcion. Iskanian v. CLS Transp. Los Angeles, LLC, 206 Cal.App.4th 949 (2012). My original post on the Court of Appeal opinion is here. The statement of issues on review has not yet been posted.
Copies of documents from the case are available at these links:
- Petition for review (filed 07/16/12)
- Answer to petition for review (filed 08/06/12)
- Reply to answer to petition for review (filed 08/17/12)
We may see some "grant and hold" cases post-Iskanian. At least two other review petitions are pending:
