Last week, on February 18, 2015, the Supreme Court depublished the Court of Appeal's opinion in In re Walgreen Co. Overtime Cases, 231 Cal.App.4th 437 (2014). The opinion is no longer citable as a precedent.
In Walgreen, the Court of Appeal (Second Appellate District, Division One) affirmed the trial court's order denying class certification of meal period claims. In so doing, the Court discussed the substantive meal period standards adopted in Brinker, but did so in a manner that the Supreme Court apparently considered inconsistent with its Brinker opinion. Depublication requests were filed by both CELA and CAOC.
