The California Supreme Court has granted review of an appellate court's decision in Arias v. Super. Ct. San Joaquin County, where the California Court of Appeal had ruled that suits to recover penalties for Labor Code violations may be brought as "representative actions" on behalf of current and former employees under the state's Private Attorney General Act—without the need for class certification. The Supreme Court's decision to review means that the appellate court opinion is not binding precedent. It keeps more stringent "class action" certification procedures in place rather than "easier-to-maintain" representative actions. You may find our summary of the earlier Arias decision in our September 10, 2007 FEB Publication.
