On Wednesday, February 25, 2014, the Supreme Court granted review in Laffitte v. Robert Half International, No. S222996. The docket does not yet provide a summary of the issues to be considered.
In Laffitte, the Court of Appeal (Second Appellate District, Division Seven), affirmed the trial court's order granting final approval of a class action settlement and attorneys' fees award in a wage and hour case. Laffitte v. Robert Half Int'l Inc., 231 Cal.App.4th 860 (2014), review granted. My original blog post on the opinion is here.
It is not clear which issue or issues the Court will be focusing on. If and when I obtain copies of the petition for review and other briefing, I will post them here.
